Paper Abstract

A method for designing thin-film optical filters based on simulated annealing techniques is outlined. In contrast to conventional methods, it does not require the user to provide a starting design and it is able to find good solutions separated by barriers in the quality function. To illustrate and discuss some of its main features, two types of design examples are presented: (i) a green/cyan colorimetric filter for use in television cameras, where cyan results from removal of the top part of the green stack, and (ii) a two peak filter for transmitting the red and green HeNe laser lines simultaneously.
