Abstract

The constrained optimization approach is applied to the design of quasi-rugate optical coatings. These coatings are defined as multilayers with no thin layers where refractive index profiles resemble rugate-type refractive index profiles and where spectral properties are typical for rugate filters. It is shown that all design problems that are usually solved using rugate filters can be solved successfully in the frame of quasi-rugate optical coatings. Comparison between quasi-rugate and two-component multilayer designs is provided.
