Abstract

A method to take advantage of high-spatial-frequency surface-relief gratings as polarizing beam splitters is described. The analogy between that kind of grating and a volume grating is the basis of the theoretical predictions. Results of rigorous calculations are presented. High polarizing performances are demonstrated. We illustrate the method with a practical realization that checks the validity of the calculations.
