Paper Abstract

The design and fabrication of capacitative metal-mesh-dielectric (MMD) mirrors are described. An outline of their expected theoretical behavior in the far infrared region in terms of the mesh parameters, g the grid periodicity, 2a the width of the gap between the metallized regions, and n the refractive index of the supporting substrate, is given. The frequency response of various MMD mirrors has been measured using a Fourier transform interferometer and is shown to agree with a suitably modified theory which takes account of the high index substrate.
