Paper Abstract

The design of dual wavelength polarizers presents a challenge if a cube configuration is not practical. If the two wavelengths are sufficiently far apart, the design can consist of a quarterwave stack reflector centered between the two wavelengths. This necessitates the proper selection of refractive indices. Further design flexibility can be obtained by introducing spacer layers which result in a Fabry-Perot type of performance. Design techniques are discussed and applied to the following spectral requirements:
