Abstract

We propose a new method for the analysis of light propagation through thick phase elements of homogeneous refractive index. The Laue equation is shown to be a generalization of Snell’s law of refraction, yielding correct amplitude and phase changes at a single refracting surface. The application to blazed phase gratings is outlined.
