Abstract

The difference between the effective indexes of refraction at oblique incidence for s and <i>p</i> waves is used to find layer combinations that attenuate s components and pass <i>p</i> components. Matching is found for <i>p</i> components to provide high transmittance. The match is independent of the number of repetitions of the intermediate-layer combinations. Transmittance of the stack is determined theoretically and experimentally to show that such a layer can be used as a polarizer.
