This paper proposes a spectral-domain approach to the electromagnetic scattering problem of lamellar grating with defects. The fields in imperfectly periodic structures have continuous spectra in the wavenumber space, and the main problem of the spectral-domain approach is connected to the discretization scheme on the wavenumber. The present approach introduces the pseudo-periodic Fourier transform to consider the discretization scheme in the Brillouin zone. This transformation also makes it possible to apply the conventional grating formulations to the problems of imperfectly periodic structures. The present formulation is based on the rigorous coupled-wave analysis with the help of pseudo-periodic Fourier transform.
