The current state of the art in selected coatings for plastic optical elements (PMMA, polycarbonate, CR 39) is discussed. Experience gained in the development work, which led to production-proven coatings on optical elements to be used in transmission in the visible range, demonstrates that the substrate quality determines the quality of the final coated element to a large degree and thus partly also the extent to which coated optical plastic is able to replace mineral glass. Consequently, the requirements which have to be met by current and future plastic substrate materials are listed in detail.
