Abstract

We describe a type of multilayer dielectric coating designed to enhance the intensity of evanescent waves. The coating consists of a stack of alternating high- and low-index quarter-wave layers followed by a final low-index layer whose thickness is chosen to optimize the evanescent-wave intensity. Indirect measurements of the film properties are in good agreement with theory.
