27 January 1989 Optical Performance Of A Waveguide Grating Imaging Device
Author Affiliations +
Waveguide optics in combination with gratings for in- and out-coupling provide a potentially powerful combination for building light, compact optical systems. The gratings may be simple linear gratings or focusing gratings for creating converging beams. To understand these devices and design and analyze them, we must consider both waveguide optical properties and the more common two dimensional optical beams. This paper addresses the special problems of fitting in- and out-coupling features into the usual end-to-end laser modeling methodology.
