Abstract

The coordinate-transformation-based differential method, initially used by Chandezon et al. for modeling surface-relief gratings, is now known as a powerful rigorous formalism for solving diffraction problems. We explain a coordinate transformation that generalizes the original one, and we extend the formulation to a wide class of monodimensional surface shapes. The boundary-value problem turns on the same eigenvalue problem for the TE and TM polarizations.
