Paper Abstract

Multilayer stacks of optical filters for spaceborne electrooptical imaging employ a staggered edge filter and a matching antireflection stack, in order to achieve the requisite passband characteristics and eliminate unwanted sideband transmission throughout the optical range. After discussing the general principles of staggered-reflector configurations and their use in the reduction of sideband transmission, attention is given to the spectral properties of the filters designed and their stability against anticipated variations in temperature and angles of incidence.
