8. Multilayer Films

Optical surfaces having virtually any desired reflectance and transmittance characteristics may be

produced by means of thin film coatings. The purpose of this chapter is to find an orderly method for

analyzing multi-layer thin films. We will first derive the characteristic matrix. From the elements of the

characteristic matrix we will solve for the coefficients of reflection and transmission. Then we will look

at examples of anti-reflection coatings and high-reflectance coatings.

8.1 Theory

Tangential components of E and H are continuous at an interface. (Figure 1 is from Optics by Hecht.)

Note that the sign of the exponent is different from some books because I write Hkz-wtL instead of

- Hkz-wtL . Thus the boundary conditions at boundary II can be written as

Therefore for any combination of films we only need to compute the characteristic matrix and substitute

the matrix elements into the above.

We will look at the case of normal incidence.

Commonly use Mg F2 which has an index of 1.38 which is larger than desired. However, a single 1/4 l

layer reduces the reflectance from 4% to approximately 1% over the entire visible spectrum.

The reflectance can be reduced by using a double layer l/4 AR coating. As an example, put index n2 on

the substrate and index n1 on top of n2 .

R2 = 0 if J N =

Thus, n2 > n1 .

Common materials for the high refractive index are zirconium dioxide, n = 2.1; titanium dioxide, n= 2.4;

zinc sulfide, n = 2.32. Common materials for the low refractive index are magnesium fluoride, n = 1.38

and cerium fluoride, n = 1.63.

By using two layers, one of high index and one of low index, zero reflectance can be obtained at one

wavelength. Three layers can give zero reflectance at two wavelengths, etc.

The simplest periodic thin film system is a quarter-wave stack which is made up of a number of

quarter-wave layers. For example, sHHLL3 a, where s is the substrate and a is air. As an example we will

n2 2 p n

n1 no

Therefore, n2 > n1 .

For high reflectance we want n2 >> n1 or n2 << n1 . Since ns > no , the result will converge a little faster

if n1 > n2 . The reflectance becomes higher as p increases. For a given p, the larger the ratio of refractive

indices the better we are.

0.918935

0.963128

Having n1 > n2 helped increase the reflectance. If p becomes 8 (16 layers) the reflectivity is greater than

99.9%.

0.999471

The following plot shows the reflectance as a function of p, the number of n1 n2 layers.

By using various combinations of quarter-wave stacks it is possible to make band pass filters, high pass

filters, low pass filters, etc. An excellent book on the topic is Thin-Film Optical Filters by H. A.

Macleod.

At non-normal incidence up to approximately 30o there is generally little degradation in the response of

thin film coatings. In general, the effect of increasing angle is a shift in the reflectance curve down to

shorter wavelengths. Remember one of my favorite equations 2 n d Cos[q] = m l. If q increases,

Cos[q] decreases, and therefore we would expect l to decrease.
