Abstract

A rigorous modal theory of conical diffraction from curved strip gratings is presented. In this approach, the C-method with adaptive spatial resolution is used in conjunction with the combined boundary conditions. The method is successfully validated by comparison with a case where the solution can also be obtained in the Cartesian coordinate system.
