Synthesis Method for Visible and Infrared Broadband Spaceflight Antireflection Coatings

C Cole, J W Bowen

OSA Technical Digest Optical Interference Coatings, Vol 17, Pages 58-60 (1995)


Evolutionary synthesis methods, as originally described by Dobrowolski, have been shown in previous literature to be an effective method of obtaining anti-reflection coating designs. To make this method even more effective, the combination of a good starting design, the best suited thin-film materials, a realistic optimization target function and a non-gradient optimization method are used in an algorithm written for a PC. Several broadband anti-reflection designs obtained by this new design method are given as examples of its usefulness.
