Dispersion relations of refractive indexes and extinction coefficients of constituent materials were obtained by comparing the experimental and simulated transmission spectra of single-layer Er2O3 and TiO2 films. We designed multilayer thin films of [Er2O3/TiO2]6/[Er2 O3]2/[TiO2/Er2O3]6 such that they can act as photonic crystals exhibiting a resonance wavelength of 514 nm. We prepared single-layer TiO2 and Er2O3 thin films on quartz glass substrates by employing a magnetron sputtering deposition method. Uniform films exhibiting very high transmittance values were obtained. Deposition rates of the TiO2 and Er2O3 films were 0.44 and 0.82 nm/s, respectively. [Er2O3/TiO2]6/[Er2 O3]2/[TiO2/Er2O3]6 multilayer films, to be used for optical bandpass filter applications, were also prepared using a multitarget sputtering deposition method. Uniform and transparent films were obtained; however, the wavelength corresponding to the highest transmittance was observed around 490 nm through ultraviolet-visible near-infrared spectroscopic measurements. The shift in the wavelength can be attributed to the low crystallinity and variations in the thicknesses of Er2O3 and TiO2 films.
