Abstract

Optical interference coatings have been designed by using combinations of wavelets (fully apodized sine-wave refractive index groups). Like a single-line rugate filter, a single wavelet produces a stop band without harmonics and, in addition, has no sidelobes. The rules for combining wavelet refractive index structures have been derived for extended-bandwidth reflectors.
