Abstract
Optical interference filters that have continuously modulated refractive indices throughout their thicknesses (rugates) are designed and fabricated using a microwave plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition technique. Examples are shown of single- and double-response narrowband reflection filters made from variable composition silicon oxynitride deposited on silica. Reflectivities in excess of 99.9% have been realized with bandwidths in the 2 to 10% range.
