Paper Abstract

The two main synthesis methods of optical interference coating design, Epstein equivalentlayersynthesis andChebyshevpolynomial synthesis, areevaluated, characterized and compared. Epstein designs are easier to produce. Chebyshev designs are superior but, because of implementation problems, often turn out worse than Epstein designs. This could change in 1 ight of recent progresses in rf-sputtering.
