The Fourier-matching pseudospectral modal method (PSMM(f)) was developed to improve the original point-matching pseudospectral modal method that uses the analytic Rayleigh expansions. Granet’s new implementation of the pseudospectral modal method is interesting, but PSMM(f) remains useful for multilayer grating stacks.
