Paper Abstract

In this work we propose and demonstrate a very simple method to fabricate interference multilayer birefringent filters. We employ the birefringence properties of common cellophane. Cellophane tape layers can be very easily superimposed with different orientations in order to generate different spectral responses. We experimentally demonstrate this behaviour with the aid of a portable spectrophotometer. This technique represents a simple and inexpensive way of experimentally investigating the optical properties of birefringent filters.
