A sequence of functions are examined for the gradient-index AR thin film between two dielectric media and are used as the starting profiles in optimization to improve AR performance. Sinusoidal functions were quite efficient to use as components of the index change in the optimization. It is shown that there exist a number of gradient-index profiles which exhibit excellent AR-performance after control of the gradient-index profiles.
