Optical thin-film components are widely used in optical systems. They are key components every time the spectral properties of light have to be controlled.
This one-day hands-on training course provides industry, especially those developing new products or addressing an application need, with a detailed overview of important thin-film optical components and the associated constraints when used in optical systems.
The course will focus on three steps when developing thin-film optical components; 1) the design of multilayer structures; 2) the fabrication of thin-film components and the monitoring of the layers thickness; 3) The characterization of fabricated components. Course attendees will learn all steps to develop thin-film optical components. They will also learn limits of the thin-film approach as well as their specific difficulties in order to better specify their future needs.
