Abstract

Perfect blazing of reflection gratings to the n = −1 spectral order for both TE and TM polarizations simultaneously, as reported recently, is shown to be possible with rectangular grooves in 19.5° < θi < 59.4°, where θi is the angle of incidence from the surface normal. Design dimensions are verified experimentally at 35 GHz.
