Paper Abstract

This paper proposes that wavelet construction of the gradient-index refractive index be used to design optical interference coatings. The basic wavelet used is a localized apodized rugate. By incorporating scaled and shifted copies of the basic wavelet, which are other elements of a basis set according to wavelet theory, a variety of interference coatings can be designed.
