Course Instructor
SC922: Optical Coatings: From Fundamentals to Applications
The course provides attendees with basic knowledge on the properties of optical coatings. The first part starts with a brief introduction into the classical theory of optical constants of metals and dielectrics, followed by a short discussion of reflection at interfaces and interference of light in thin films. The first part concludes with selected examples of multilayer optical coatings design and properties such as edge filters, bandpass filters, and more. The second part of the course deals with the technical processes of coating preparation and characterization. It starts from the basics of vacuum technology, followed by the description of most impor-tant coating technologies, relevant characterization techniques and application examples.
