Abstract

A Bragg reflector composed of periodic cylindrically symmetric corrugations can provide a reflection of nearly unity through the principles of constructive interference, allowing the formation of a frequency selective resonator. Mode conversion will occur, but can be reduced by tapering the amplitude of the corrugations. Reflection measurements are compared with theoretical predictions for untapered sinusoidal and rectangular corrugation as well as a reflector tapered according to the Hamming-window prescription. Measurements of Bragg resonators are also presented.
