Abstract

Modern design approaches enable one to construct a series of theoretical designs with excellent spectral properties for almost all optical coating design problems. Selection of a practical optimal design among a variety of possible theoretical designs becomes a key issue. We demonstrate how preproduction estimations of expected production yields can be used for selection of a practical optimal design. The question of reliability of such estimations is also addressed.
