We show that a gradient-index element designed from a blend of three materials allows a designer to specify independently the element’s refractive index and its change in refractive index with respect to wavelength. We show further the effectiveness of this approach by comparing modeled chromatic performance of deflectors consisting of a single material, a binary blend of materials, and a ternary blend.
