Abstract

A method of comparing the theoretical optical performance of metal films and absorbing multilayer stacks is given. It is shown analytically how the thickness of a nonabsorbing spacer layer between two absorbing stacks may be chosen to maximize either the reflectance or reflectance + transmittance of the complete system. Some numerical examples are given.
