Abstract
We propose the design for a switchable mirror with high efficiency and a 30 nm bandwidth. The device is based on a liquid crystal filled etalon. Broad bandwidth is achieved through the use of integrated half-wave layers into the dielectric stack design, while high efficiency is achieved using a polarization independent liquid crystal effect. Potential applications in the area of displays are also presented.
