Paper Abstract

The microstructure of ortical thin films is strongly columnar with a large internal surface area and void volume. This structure has great influence on the optical and mechanical properties of the films and is responsible for many of the difficulties experienced with the fabrication and subsequent performance of optical coatings. The microstructure, some of its effects on film properties, and the latest ideas on its origins are surveyed.
