Paper Abstract

The spectral response of a non-uniform optical coating in a particular optical system is analyzed. The optical coating in the optical system is optimized having as targets the spectral responses (integral reflection factors) of the coating deposited on a diopter in a particular optical system. A conversation is established between the designing program for optical coatings and the designing program for optical systems. The designing program for optical coatings communicates to the designing program for optical systems the coating and the targets to be optimized. The designing program for optical systems evaluates the merit function and communicates it to the designing program for optical coatings, which accordingly modifies the optical coating parameters to attain an optimum, depending on the merit function evolution. The process is repeated until the merit function reaches an extreme.
