Abstract
A technique is described for modifying the spectral profile of a Fabry-Perot etalon by introducing a spatial variation to the etalon thickness and reflectivity. The viability of the technique is demonstrated by grinding and polishing a solid lithium niobate etalon to give a controlled thickness variation. A flat-topped transmission profile is generated from the measured thickness map, and further modification of the profile is predicted by introducing customized variations in thickness and reflectivity of the etalon mirrors
