Abstract

We describe a new modular method for the calculation of wave propagation in stratified media based on the direct use of reflection and transmission coefficients. Within this reflection from the left, transmission, and reflection from the right (LTR) method we define addition and multiplication operators that enable the theoretical construction of any multilayered structures from substructures. This modular concept allows for the design and analysis of complex multilayer structures for optical devices. (C) 2001 Optical Society of America.
