Abstract
An original way of synthesizing optical multilayer systems is presented. Based on a genetic algorithm (GA), this method searches for the optimal sequence of materials and the thicknesses of each layer. The basic theory of GA's as well as their specific application to the design of optical coatings is described. Different examples are shown and the interest of the method is discussed.
