Paper Abstract

A theoretical design and experimental realization of multi-layer mirrors for Fabry-Perot interferometry and optical telecommunications is described in this work. The mirrors were designed and fabricated by 13 successive thin layers to achieve very high reflectance at optical wavelengths around 1300 nm. Thin layers are ZnS y MgF2 presenting high and low refractive index respectively. Layer thickness are of λo/2 at λo = 656 nm. Experimental results include the characterization of the transmittance of mirrors around 1300 nm. Additionally the mirrors were integrated in a Fabry-Perot interferometer to characterize optical sources emitting at 1300 nm. Finally to show a practical application, optical phase modulation was analyzed, using the fabricated mirrors.
