A general circuit model is proposed for frequency domain analysis of inhomogeneous two-dimensional periodic gratings. Each component of electromagnetic fields is expressed by several spatial harmonic plane waves. Then, two differential equations and two boundary conditions are obtained for the electric and magnetic vectors. Finally a circuit model is introduced for the obtained equations. The circuit model consists of loaded and excited nonuniform coupled transmission lines (CTL).
