Experimental determination of nanocomposite grating structures by light- and neutron-diffraction in the multi-wave-coupling regime
- Journal Article
We experimentally demonstrate how to accurately retrieve the refractive index profile of photonic structures by standard diffraction experiments and use of the rigorous coupled-wave analysis in the multi-wave coupling regime, without the need for taking any auxiliary data. In particular, we show how the phases of the Fourier components of a periodic structure can be fully recovered by deliberately choosing a probe wavelength of the diffracting radiation much smaller than the lattice constant of the structure. In the course of our demonstration, we accurately determine the slight asymmetry of the structure of nanocomposite phase gratings by light and neutron diffraction measurements. Show more
