Abstract

The study of Crego and Rustgi [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 7, 877 ( 1990)] of the reflection of p-polarized waves from a periodically rough multilayered surface, which consists of a thin dielectric film on top of a metallic film with a grating underlayer, is extended by adding higher-harmonic terms to the fundamental profile function of the grating. It is observed that the angles of incidence at which field-enhanced peaks and reflectivity dips occur shift toward smaller values and that the magnitudes of these dips and peaks increase as higher harmonics are added.
