Abstract
The quality of optical thin films in integrated optics was more advanced than those in optical coatings in the mid- 1970s. However, quality of today's ion beam sputtered coatings is more advanced than the films in integrated optics. This reversal appears to be application driven. Due to the heavy demand of information highway, it is believed that better quality films in integrated optics will soon catch up again. Ample illustrations will be given.
