Abstract

We present a general design strategy for a broadband thin-film beam splitter with matched group-delay dispersion. By taking the substrate dispersion into account in the coating design, any combination of input and output can show the same dispersion for transmission and reflection. As a specific implementation, an ultrabroadband 50:50 beam splitter from 600 to 1500 nm for femtosecond laser applications was designed, fabricated, and characterized.
