We developed a new method aimed at designing short-pass filters, long-pass filters and filters blocking sidebands of Fabry-Perot bandpasses. The method is an automated version of a non-straightforward empirical approach invented as a result of many years’ experience in design and production of optical coatings. The method allows obtaining near-quarter-wave solutions in a few seconds. In many cases these solutions are more advantageous for deposition systems.
