Abstract
Optical coatings and filters have enormous applications in every branch of modern optics. Traditionally optical films are deposited by evaporation, sputtering, and by chemical methods. Using these above mentioned techniques it is very difficult to obtain excellent quality films ; that is, films with extremely low values of scattering, absorption and film stress and high corrosion resistance to humidity. Recently developed Ion-Assisted Deposition techniques produce high performance films but suffer with high cost and their difficulty to coat odd shaped objects.
