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


  • We use Agilent Cary 7000 Spektrometer in our laboratory. Is it possible to import Agilent measurement data to OptiRE/OptiChar?

Of course. OptiRe and OptiChar have import option allowing you easily preview and import Agilent Cary data (including data from 7000 model).

  • Can I use in OptiLayer layer materials which I created in OptiRe?

OptiLayer and OptiRE can use the same Problem Directories and can share the same data including materials and substrates. Designs also can be accessed through the Design database by both programs. Even material abbreviation assignment can be easily transferred from/to OptiLayer/OptiRE project files.

  • I would like to learn example with COM Automation. Where I can find them?

You easily find these examples on your Desktop. They are automatically place there during the installation of OptiLayer.

  • I covered the front side of the substrate with already covered back side. Finally, I have a substrate covered from both sides. How can I provide post-production characterization of the front side coating?

You can do it using OptiRE module. In OptiRE you need to load your substrate and load back side coating (right-click menu at Designs database). Do not forget to specify properly substrate thickness and be sure that the boxes “Reflectance without back side”/”Transmittance without back side” are unchecked.
