S-matrix propagation algorithm in modal method by Fourier expansion for rigorous simulation of multi-layered grating structures: development and applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

We report on a Maxwell-solver modal technique for multi-layered grating structures which is convergent and unconditionally stable with respect to increasing the truncation order, depths and number of grating layers. To provide the convergence, the Rayleigh-Fourier series implementation has been recast as compared to the rigorous coupled-wave analysis. The solution is propagated through the layers using a scattering-matrix ansatz that ensures the stability. Different applications of the developed technique are outlined.
