Abstract
Theories developed to understand angular selective films, recent new deposition procedures , the structural information on the resulting films, and new advances in effective medium theories have together provided the insights into controlling the spectral optical response of cermets to a degree not previously realized. The key is understanding the resonance characteristics of cermets. Several factors play a role, but three have a prime influence. They are the spatial distribution of the metal particles (even more important than total content), the dielectric constant of the host material and the metal itself.
