Abstract

A normalized modal analysis of binary gratings under normal TE incidence involving the most condensed set of optogeometrical parameters gives a complete solution to the problem of canceling the 0 th transmitted order in phase masks of a low-to-high refractive index ratio down to 0.5 with a large tolerance on the corrugation duty cycle or a large spectral bandwidth. The solution is presented in the form of single normalized 3D charts which shed light on the fulfillment of the 0 th - order cancellation condition: balanced excitation and π-phase difference between two grating modes. Examples of tolerant gratings are given.
