Abstract

Rugate filters reflectance spectra were calculated for various index profiles with half-Gaussian modulation; graded-index as well as step-index profiles were used. The results show excellent sidelobe suppression around the stopbands, relatively high optical density, and good flatness in the reflectance band.
