Title:General analytical solution for the electromagnetic grating diffraction problem

Abstract: Implementing the modal method in the electromagnetic grating diffraction problem delivered by the curvilinear coordinate transformation yields a general analytical solution to the 1D grating diffraction problem in a form of a T-matrix. Simultaneously it is shown that the validity of the Rayleigh expansion is defined by the validity of the modal expansion in a transformed medium delivered by the coordinate transformation.
