Gaylord School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia 30332 Received August 24, 1994; accepted October 12, 1994; revised manuscript received November 7, 1994 The rigorous coupled-wave analysis technique for describing the diffraction of electromagnetic waves by peri- odic grating structures is reviewed. ulations for a stable and efficient numerical implementation of the analysis technique are presented for one-dimensional binary gratings for both TE and TM polarization and for the general case of conical diffraction. It is shown that by exploitation of the symmetry of the diffraction prob- lem a very efficient ulation, with up to an order-of-magnitude improvement in the numerical efficiency, is produced. The rigorous coupled-wave analysis is shown to be inherently stable. The sources of potential numerical problems associated with underflow and overflow, inherent in digital calculations, are presented. A ulation that anticipates and preempts these instability problems is presented. The calculated diffrac- tion efficiencies for dielectric gratings are shown to converge to the correct value with an increasing number of space harmonics over a wide range of parameters, including very deep gratings. The effect of the number of harmonics on the convergence of the diffraction efficiencies is investigated. More field harmonics are shown to be required for the convergence of gratings with larger grating periods, deeper gratings, TM polarization, and conical diffraction. 1. INTRODUCTION Over the past 10 years the rigorous coupled-wave analysis RCWA has been the most widely used for the accurate analysis of the diffraction of electromag- netic waves by periodic structures. It has been used successfully and accurately to analyze both holographic and surface-relief grating structures. It has been u- lated to analyze transmission and reflection planar dielec- tric absorption holographic gratings, arbitrary profiled dielectric metallic surface-relief gratings, multipld holographic gratings, two-dimensional surface-relief grat- ings, and anisotropic gratings for both planar and conical diffraction.19 The RCWA is a relatively straightforward technique for obtaining the exact solution of Maxwells equations for the electromagnetic diffraction by grating structures. It is a noniterative, deterministic technique utilizing a state-variable that converges to the proper so- lution without inherent numerical instabilities. The ac- curacy of the solution obtained depends solely on the number of terms in the field space-harmonic expansion, with conservation of energy always being satisfied. Our purpose in this paper is to present a detailed re- view of the RCWA and to provide a step-by-step guide for its efficient and stable implementation. A simple com- pact ulation for the efficient and stable numerical implementation of the RCWA for one-dimensional, rectangular-groove binary surface-relief dielectric grat- ings is presented. ulations for TE and TM polar- ization and for the conical-diffraction configuration are included. It is shown that a very efficient ulation, with up to an order-of-magnitude improvement in the numerical efficiency, can be achieved by exploitation of the symmetry of the diffraction problem. The technique is shown to be fundamentally stable. The criteria for numerical stability are 1 energy conservation and 2 convergence to the proper solution with an increasing number of field harmonics for all the grating and the incident-wave parameters. Potential numerical difficul- ties can be preempted by proper ulation and nor- malization. Specifically, the nonpropagating evanescent space harmonics in the grating region must be properly handled in the numerical implementation. The effect of the number of terms in the field space-harmonic ex- pansion on the convergence of the diffraction efficiency is investigated. It is shown that for dielectric gratings, even very deep gratings, the calculated diffraction effi- ciencies always converge to the correct value as the num- ber of space harmonics increases. As expected, more field space harmonics are required for the convergence of gratings with larger grating periods, deeper gratings, TM polarization, and conical diffraction. 2. ULATION The general three-dimensional binary grating diffraction problem is depicted in Fig. 1. A linearly polarized elec- tromagnetic wave is obliquely incident at an arbitrary an- gle of incidence u and at an azimuthal angle f upon a binary dielectric or lossy grating. The grating period L is, in general, composed of several regions with differing refractive indices. The grating is bound by two differ- ent media with refractive indices nI and nII.

Ti is the normalized electric-field amplitude of the forward- diffracted transmitted wave in region II. The magnetic sxd X h exp j 2ph , 1 fields in regions I and II may be obtained from Maxwells equation h L where h is the hth Fourier component of the relative permittivity in the grating region, which is complex for lossy or nonsymmetric dielectric gratings. For simple grating structures with alternating regions of refractive indices nrd sridged and ngr sgrooved the Fourier harmonics are given by sinsphf d H vm 3 E , 8 where m is the permeability of the region and v is the angular optical frequency. In the grating region s0 , z , dd the tangential electric y-component and magnetic xcomponent fields may be expressed with a Fourier expansion in terms of the space- 0 nrd2f 1 ngr 2s1 2 f d, h snrd2 2 ngr 2 d , ph 2 harmonic fields as Egy X Syi szdexps2jkxi xd , 9 i where f is the fraction of the grating period occupied by the region of index nrd and 0 is the average value of the relative permittivity, not the permittivity of free space. The general approach for solving the exact electro- Hgx 2j e0 m0 1/2 X xi szdexps2jkxi i xd , 10 magnetic-boundary-value problem associated with the diffraction grating is to find solutions that satisfy Maxwells equations in each of the three , grat- ing, and output regions and then match the tangen- tial electric- and magnetic-field components at the two boundaries.

Here all the forward- and the backward- diffracted orders lie in the same plane the plane of inci- dence, the x z plane. For the general three-dimensional problem sf f i 0d, or conical diffraction, the wave vectors of the diffracted orders lie on the surface of a cone, and the perpendicular and the parallel components of the 0 gy z x Substituting Eqs. 9 and 10 into Eqs. 11 and 12 and eliminating Hgz , we obtain the coupled-wave equations Syi z k0Uxi , electric and the magnetic fields are coupled and must be obtained simultaneously.

The s2n 3 2nd matrix in Eq. 14 thus VX 2V c2 j YII fT g , 24 becomes an sn 3 nd matrix in Eq. 15. We solve the set of the coupled-wave equations by cal- culating the eigenvalues and the eigenvectors associated with the matrix A. The simplification step taken from Eq. 14 to Eq. 15 effectively reduces the overall com- putational time of the eigenvalue problem by a factor of 8. Moreover, for symmetric gratings, the matrix A is symmetric for dielectric or Hermitian for lossy binary gratings. Hence a significant enhancement in the com- putational efficiency and a reduction in the computer memory requirement can be achieved by use of an ap- propriate eigenvalue software package. The space har- monics of the tangential electric and magnetic fields in the grating region are then given by n where di0 1 for i 0 and di0 0 for i fi 0 and X, YI, and YII are diagonal matrices with the diagonal ele- ments exps2k0qmdd, skI,ziyk0d, and skII,ziyk0d, respectively. Equations 21 and 24 are solved simultaneously for the forward- and backward-diffracted amplitudes Ti and Ri. Numerical overflow is successfully preempted by the normalization process; i.e., at both boundaries Eqs. 19 23 the arguments of the exponential are al- ways negative. One may significantly improve numeri- cal efficiency by eliminating Ri from Eqs. 19 and 20 and Ti from Eqs. 22 and 23, solving the resulting set of equations for the cm1 coefficients, and then substituting these coefficients back into Eqs. 21 and 24 to calculate Ri and Ti. However, attempts to solve Eq. 24 for cm1 and cm2 in terms of Ti and then substitute for cm1 and Syi szd P wi, m hcm1 exps2k0qmzd c 2 in Eq. 21 to determine T and R will probably cause m1 m i i 1 cm2 expfk0qmsz 2 ddgj , 17 n numerical errors. This is due to possible zero columns on the left-hand sides of Eqs. 21 and 24, which result from very small terms in the diagonal matrix X when some of Uxi szd P vi, m h2cm1 exps2k0qmzd m1 1 cm2 expfk0 qmsz 2 ddgj , 18 the generally complex eigenvalues have a large positive real part.

The quantity vi, m qmwi, m is the i, m element of the matrix V 5 WQ, where Q is a diagonal matrix with the elements qm. The quantities DEti Ti Ti p Re kII, zi . k0nI cos u 25 cm 1 and cm2 are unknown constants to be determined from the boundary conditions. Note that the exponential terms involving the positive square root of the eigenvalues are normalized to prevent possible numerical overflow, as is shown below. We calculate the amplitudes of the diffracted fields Ri and Ti together with cm1 and cm2 by matching the tangential electric- and magnetic-field components at the two boundaries. At the boundary sz 0d n The sum of the reflected and the transmitted diffrac- tion efficiencies given by Eq. 25 must be unity for loss- less gratings. This sum is independent of the number of space harmonics retained in the field expansion, which de- termines the accuracy of the individual diffracted orders. 4.
