## Abstract

A method is described for the design of a thin-film all-dielectric polarizing beam splitter in which the transmittances for *p*- and *s*-polarized light are greater than 0.96 and less than 0.03, respectively, throughout the spectral region extending from 0.40 to 0.70 μm, and for an angular field of 12° measured in air.
