# Mathematical modeling in diffractive optics

Chapter

## Abstract

Diffractive optics is an emerging technology with many practical applications. Some of the applications and the need for mathematical modeling underlying them were discussed in two previous presentations by Allen Cox (from Honeywell Technology Center) as reported in [1; Chap. 22] and [2; Chap. 5]. One of the most elementary applications is replacing conventional lens by diffractive gratings which are produced by interference fringes on holographic plates. Other applications include nonreflective interface (called moth-eye grating), beam splitters, sensors, and variety of corrective lenses.
