Layer Absorptance Targets

Using Layer Absorptance Targets you can optimize the absorptance in layers of a specified layer material or materials. Due to flexible implementation this target can be used in all synthesis options including Needle Optimization and Gradual Evolution.

optimization of absorptance in multilayers

Example: Optimization of absorptance in Ti layer of a coating for solar cells

optimization of layer absorptance

Design problem: to optimize absorptance in Ti-layer and solar absorptance of the coating. Constrained optimization can be applied. In the course of the optimization, layer absorptance target is taken into account.
