Rigorous electromagnetic analysis of diffractive cylindrical lenses

Abstract

A novel two-region formulation of the rigorous electromagnetic boundary element method (BEM) is developed and applied to practical diffractive cylindrical lenses of continuous profile and with discrete levels (32, 8, and 2). The performance of these diffractive lenses is presented for incident waves of TE and TM polarization, for a range of beam profiles, and for normal and nonnormal incidence. An optimum width of the Gaussian beam is determined. The BEM is shown to be accurate and versatile, providing the numerical and graphical results that are needed for analysis and design of diffractive elements.
