Abstract

The equivalence of generalized multiwave coupled-wave theory and rigorous modal theory for describing diffraction by volume periodic structures is established. The detailed connection between these theories is presented. The coupled-wave approach, which provides simple formulation and good physical insight, may thus also be used to obtain exact results.
