Paper Abstract

The method involves a system of computer-assisted algorithms. This system enables us to unite all refractions rays which outcame or reflected from it into beams of parallel rays. For each beam, in the near area of the crystal, the amplitudes of electromagnetic field components and the coordinates of the vertexes of its polygonal cross- section are determined. Then, the electromagnetic fields of refraction beams are recalculated into a far area by means of method of physical optics. The algorithm system is developed in assumption that the crystal under investigation is a convex polyhedron. In the algorithms, the crystal form is defined by the coordinates of its vertexes and can be arbitrary.
