OptiLayer:  Your Partner in Design and Post-Production Characterization of Optical Coatings



Example of a dual-band antireflection coating: 

  • Operating spectral ranges: 3.5-5 μm and 7.8-10.5 μm
  • Layer materials: YF3 and ZnS
  • Substrate: Ge

You need one 1-2 second to obtain an excellent AR in multiple spectral ranges.

We prepared a video example that demonstrates designing dual-band AR at YouTube YouTube

OptiLayer allows designing AR operating at oblique incidence. You can specify and target spectral and angular range.


  • Visible spectral range
  • AOI from 0 to 45 degrees
  • Materials with refractive indices 2.35 and 1.45
  • Glass substrate
  • Average polarization (non-polarized light)

For designing details see our video example at YouTube YouTube




OptiLayer allows simultaneous specifying conventional, integral, EFI and color targets. Antireflection coatings with additional requirements can be easily designed. 

Example: AR in the visible range with specified color properties:

  • AR operates in the VIS and in the angular range from 0 to 45 degrees;
  • Color of the reflected light is pink
