Abstract

An analysis of the effects of random aperiodicities on the reflectivity response of a periodic waveguide grating is presented. This analysis is based on our thin film model of the waveguide grating and employs Rouard’s method. We show that aperiodicities as small as 1% of the grating period significantly alter the reflectivity response.
