This contribution concentrates on theoretical studies of diffraction processes in surface-relief gratings. The characterization of diffraction processes and mechanisms is presented and discussed, together with the regions with typical diffraction regimes. The attention is also devoted to phase synchronism: angular and volume types of synchronisms are distinguished. Some typical examples of modeling are considered for a class of binary surface-relief gratings. Rigorous coupled-wave analysis is used for modeling, and some interesting result of volume phase synchronism are presented and discussed. Finally, features of a fundamental resonator region, which is characterized by strong energy interchange processes, since a new diffraction order starts to become real propagating, are described and interpreted.
