Beam displacement and distortion effects in narrowband optical thin-film filters

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A three-dimensional model for beam propagation through optical interference filters is presented. The model predicts a wavelength-dependent lateral beam displacement of tens or hundreds of micrometers in narrowband filters at an angle of incidence of only 3° to 5°. The effects of filter bandwidth, wavelength offset, angle of incidence, and beam size are investigated. The effect is experimentally confirmed for a 100  GHz filter at a 3.5° angle of incidence.
