Parametric Optimization and Tolerance Analysis of Slanted Gratings


Coupling of light into guiding structures with high efficiency is an important issue for many applications, like backlight, optical interconnector, and near-to-eye displays. For such applications, slanted gratings are well known for being capable to couple monochromatic light with high efficiency. In this example, the optimization of a slanted grating with the rigorous Fourier modal method is presented. The optimized grating shows a diffraction efficiency of over 90% for a predefined direction order. In addition, the influence from the slope deviation of the grating is investigated.
