29 August 2005 Chromatic dependence of thin-film spatial filters
Author Affiliations +
It has recently been proposed a new application of optical thin films as one-dimensional filters for spatial frequencies (Opt. Lett. 30, p. 914). Some possible applications include detection of extrasolar planets, high-sensitivity angle sensors, and beam-splitter cubes for special purposes. In this paper, the performance of thin-film spatial filters toward changes in wavelength is studied to characterize their behavior in optical systems that involve polychromatic light. We show how the performance of these devices under white-light illumination is influenced by the selection of design parameters.
