Fig. 2. Refractive-index profiles and reflectance spectra for a house-like reflector calculated with (a) a zero phase, (b) a SWIFT-phase without using some portion of the long-wavelength tower in phase calculation, (c) a SWIFT-phase combined with iterations. The red dashed line is the design target and the black lines are the synthesized spectra.
