Feature Optics and the Critical Planes of the Grating

Authors: Paul Mirsky

Feature optics (FO) was recently proposed as a new tool which models the beam and the grating as combinations of simple elements called features. This work applies FO to the many patterns formed by the light from a grating as it propagates into the far field, passing through various planes. We find that the entire process can be expressed naturally and beautifully in terms of FO.
