A theoretical study of differences in broadband high-index-contrast grating (HCG) reflectors for TM and TE polarizations is presented, covering various grating parameters and properties of HCGs. It is shown that the HCG reflectors for TM polarization (TM HCG reflectors) have much thicker grating thicknesses and smaller grating periods than the TE HCG reflectors. This difference is found to originate from the different boundary conditions met for the electric field of each polarization. Due to…

Monolithic high-contrast gratings (MHCGs) are able to reflect light as well as can classical subwavelength high-contrast gratings (HCGs), without requiring, as do classical HCGs, to be sandwiched
