Analysis of the influence of the passive facet of blazed transmission gratings in the intermediate diffraction regime.

Abstract

Blazed diffraction gratings are of enormous practical importance for imaging and analyzing hybrid optical systems. The intermediate diffraction regime is characterized by the transition from the scalar to the rigorous electromagnetic theory. An effect known as shadowing occurs and reduces the diffraction efficiency. Based on rigorous calculations for… (More)
