Abstract

This paper introduces a method for synthesis of optical thin-film coatings aimed at both simplicity and versatility. Implementation of the method in a computer program allows the designer to build a multilayer interactively by successive construction of special four-layer modules. Each added module effects an exact transformation at a single wavelength from an initial point in the complex reflectance plane to a desired target point. The computational algorithm is practical for use on a small computer yet yields good results without the need for starting designs. Several synthesis examples are presented.
