Abstract

The characteristic matrix method is used to compute the electric field distribution in a multilayer. The use of optically inhomogeneous films is suggested to lessen discontinuity in the material properties and in the absorption distribution at interfaces between the high-index and the low-index layers, thereby enhancing the laser damage threshold.
