Non-thoriated rare-earth fluoride based coating solutions involving DyF3 and YbF3 based films as well as non-wetting fluorohydrocarbon cap layers on such films, have been deposited, analyzed and partly optimized. Intermediate results for DyF3 based films from ion assisted e-gun deposition with O2 and N2 alone and as base for the non-wetting to-player as well as for YbF3 starting material with or without admixtures of CaF2 are discussed for low-loss LWIR and multispectral solutions.
