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


Simple color targets

OptiLayer provides Color Design options enabling design of multilayers with specified color properties. In order to design such coatings, Color Targets are to be specified. OptiLayer allows one to specify up to 99 color targets. Each target contains:

  • Type of color characteristic (according to selected Color Space)
  • Angle of incidence
  • Spectral Characteristic (reflectance, transmittance and/or back side reflectance)
  • Polarization type (S, P and A-averaged)
  • Values of color coordinates
  • Tolerances
  • Qualifiers (for Range Targets)

Convenient Preview Option allows one to visualize specified color targets.
