31 October 1986 Single Figure Merit Function For AR-Coatings In Electro-Optical Systems

Merit functions are derived for non-imaging and imaging systems. In non-imaging (energy-collecting) systems it is essential to maximize the output signal of the detector, which leads to the well established criterion of maximizing system throughput. Imaging systems, on the other hand, require maximizing the spatial signal-to-background ratio. The merit function derived from this criterion is suitable for assessing different coating designs relating to their effectiveness in electro-optical systems.
