Abstract

We present a theoretical model of light-beam propagation in anisotropic and inhomogeneous dielectric structures obtained as a direct extension of the scalar fast-Fourier-transform beam-propagation method. We solve Maxwell’s equations in a generalized geometrical optics approximation, in which the reflected fields are neglected. This is a full-vectorial model because it accounts for the polarization effects that are due to both the anisotropy and the inhomogeneity of the medium.
