M. Gerken and D. A. B. Miller, "Multilayer thin-film coatings for optical communication systems," OSA Topical Meeting on Optical Interference Coatings 2004, Tucson, AZ (June 27-July 02, 2004). Invited Paper ThD2. Poster ThF2.

Recent developments in thin-film coatings for optical communication systems are reviewed. Particular emphasis is given to thin-film designs with dispersion related to the photonic crystal superprism effect. A single dispersive coating may be used for multiplexing or demultiplexing several wavelength channels by spatial beam shifting.
