Abstract:

An efficient modeling of the electromagnetic scattering properties of symmetric lamellar periodic structures at normal incidence is discussed within the framework of the modal-field approach. By taking advantage of the inherent symmetry, a numerical computational speedup of up to 8 times can be achieved by explicitly ignoring anti-symmetric modes, which play no role in the scattering process at all.
