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


 Calculation of spectral characteristics

OptiLayer enables calculating and plotting a large variety of spectral characteristics:

  • Reflectance R, transmittance T, absorptance A for s- and p-polarized light
  • Phase shifts on reflection and transmission for s- and p-polarizations
  • Differential phase shifts on reflection and transmission

The spectral characteristics are calculated for the design currently loaded into the memory.

Spectral characteristics can be calculated and plotted in spectral mode as well as in angular mode.

The design cross section is represented by the design bar showing layers in different colors, the number of layers N and the overall thickness Th of the coating.

If a target is loaded, the corresponding merit function value MF on the bottom of the plot.
