Abstract
By comparing multilayer and rugate solutions to a typical rugate synthesis problem we demonstrate that rugate synthesis methods are still of a great importance. The new accurate algorithm for the synthesis of rugate coatings with arbitrary refractive index profiles is discussed. It is shown that this algorithm can be successfully applied for solving such classical rugate synthesis problem as reducing sidelobes accompanying stopbands of rugate filters.
