Abstract

The equivalent index of a symmetrical nonabsorbing three-layer stack is plotted vs the thickness ratio and index ratio of the high-index and low-index layers. This furnishes some useful insight into the behavior of the equivalent index and is useful in the design of antireflection coatings and edge filters.
