Abstract

It is found that when a light beam is incident obliquely on a thin film Fabry–Perot filter (FPF) from different incident media (air or substrate), the reflective beam will be shifted in both the forward and the backward directions. Based on this inverted spatial dispersion effect, two thin film FPFs with different directional lateral shifts are assembled to get a thin film superprism with a wider dispersion band. The thin film samples are fabricated as well as tested, and the results are in approximate agreement with numerical simulation.
