Abstract

Measurements of the sharp reflection peaks of two iridescent potassium chlorate crystals are presented, together with theoretical calculations based on Lord Rayleigh’s model that the reflection is due to a stratified “grating-in-depth,” formed by evenly spaced layers of low reflectance. The possibility of such structures for filters useful in the far infrared is pointed out.
