A visual tool for optical properties (reflection and transmission) simulation and design of multilayer lamillar grating structures is developed, and reported in this work. The simulations are based on rigorous electromagnetic analyses using S-matrix propagation algorithms which are implemented with Fourier-transform discretization, and are coded in Matlab. Visual C++ software tools are used to feed in the input parameters and feed out the results. The input parameters include: input structure, optical and materials parameters. The tools run on a pc. Examples of some of the screen frames obtained by the tools are presented.
