The problem of a guided wave reflected by a thin-film grating is considered. A solution method is proposed based on a coupled-beam theory and a boundary-value iteration. The method is applied to different configurations. A focusing wavelength demultiplexer is analyzed, which could be used with stripe waveguides as input and output channels.
