We report on the design, fabrication, and characterization of spatially variable infrared photonic band gap filter that consists of thermally evaporated, high refractive index contrast, amorphous chalcogenide glass multilayers. Due to graded thickness structure, the filter exhibits a position dependent stop band and a cavity mode ranging from 1.8 to 3.4 μm wavelengths. Reflection measurements on the variable filter agree well with theoretical calculations. These results pave the way to low-loss infrared mirrors, filters, spectral imaging, and miniaturized spectrometers at infrared region.
