Metal-Dielectric Bandpass Filter
This filter transmits a fairly narrow band of wavelengths centered at 870 nm.|
This design is for normal incidence on a BK7 (ordinary) glass substrate. Three materials are used: Au, SiO2, and TiO2. Starting with a thin, one-layer design, TFCalc's needle/tunneling method produced a sequence of designs of increasing complexity. The design (whose performance is shown above) consists of 8 layers. Designs with as few as 4 layers are possible. However, those designs have lower transmittance and a wider pass band.
Here is the design, with the first layer closest to the substrate and thickness given in nm:
AU 23.33 SIO2 121.94 TIO2 94.24 SIO2 302.57 TIO2 94.24 SIO2 127.87 AU 24.97 TIO2 101.94
