RETICOLO implements the rigorous coupled wave analysis (RCWA) for 1D (classical and conical diffraction) and 2D crossed gratings. It operates under a MATLAB environment and incorporates an efficient and accurate toolbox for visualizing the electromagnetic field in the grating. As a spinoff, version V9 launched in 2021 incorporates a toolbox to analyze thin film stacks made of uniform media with arbitrary anisotropy.
