Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We present the calculation of surface electromagnetic radiation to all orders from a spatially modulated, oscillating dipole layer sandwiched between two dielectric media. The results properly include the macroscopic local field factors. In specular reflection direction, we show that the total radiation is partitioned into a term which is the zeroth-order counterpart to the higher-order diffraction and a term related only to the properties of two adjoining bulk media. The results unify the calculations by Shen and Heinz and McIntyre [1, 6, 7]
