Multiple spectral window mirrors based on Fibonacci chains of dielectric layers and applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The unique properties of one-dimensional (1D) Fibonacci chains of dielectric layers are experimentally demonstrated and exploited for the design of new mirrors with multiple reflection spectral windows. The new mirror structures are simple, straightforward to make and enable a wide variety of multiple spectral window device performance to be achieved. By changing the thickness of the layers or the order of the Fibonacci chain, tens or even hundreds of windows can be obtained with the same approximate reflectivity over a very broad spectral region. These mirrors have numerous applications in photonics and optoelectronics.
