In numerous instances a ray propagating through an optical system penetrates a multilayer coating such a bandpass filter, polarizer, beamdivider or antireflection coating. The additional retardance that the coating adds to that ray is, to a first approximation, the optical thickness of the multilayer. Several examples are given.
