  • Thin-Film Optical Filters, Third Editionby H. Angus MacLeod

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 173.95

    Very common optical coatings are those that give the faint, reflected color to the lenses in cameras, binoculars, and spectacles. The thin metal layer that makes the difference between a mirror and a simple sheet of glass is an optical coating. But, optical coatings are used in many more applications-a particularly important current one being the splitting... more...
