A different approach to construct dispersive mirrors (DMs) for ultrafast applications is proposed based on the high reflectivity and constant phase property of a novel metal in ultrawide spectral band. A 200-nm bandwidth DM, a high dispersive DM, and a complementary DM are designed with mixed metal multilayer dielectric stacks. The results show that the mixed-metal multilayer dielectric DMs (MMDMs) have much less layers and total thickness compared with an all-dielectric DM under the case of comparable performance. Such an approach will save manufacturing time and remarkably improve the stress of the DM.
