Abstract

In the method to be described, the dielectric film is deposited between two silver films so that the three-layer system constitutes a Fabry–Perot interference filter. It is shown how measurements of the variation of the wavelength of peak transmittance over the surface of the filter can be combined with a measurement of the effective refractive index to obtain precise values of the distribution of relative geometrical thickness of the dielectric spacing layer.
