We have developed a generalized Bloch wave approach for the analysis of aperiodic gratings. This method yields both a macroscopic (i.e., reflection or transmission coefficient) as well as a microscopic (i.e., dispersion diagram and microstructure of the propagating internal field) characterization of fiber and waveguide aperiodic gratings.
