Abstract
Graded index layers provide a greater flexibility for the design of optical coatings than "homogeneous" layers. A graded index layer can replace the whole or a part of a traditional multilayer stack of alternating thin films of high and low refractive index. This paper presents design examples for broadband antireflection coatings, narrowband high reflectors (also referred to as minus filters or rejection line filters), and non-polarizing beam splitters. Optimized refractive index profiles are derived for broadband antireflection coatings for various combinations of incident medium and substrate. The rejection line filter example uses a sinusoidal (rugate) index profile. The non-polarizing beamsplitter summarizes the topical contents of a paper presented in another conference at the same symposium.
