Diffraction by an infinite set of soft/hard parallel half planes

We consider the diffraction of a plane wave by an infinite set of parallel equidistant half planes. On each plate the total field vanishes on one side, and the normal derivative vanishes on the other side. A closed-form solution to this new canonical diffraction problem is presented for Bragg angle incidence.
