The effects of a dielectric coating on a moving mirror upon the characteristics of the reflected wave are investigated. Both polarizations of incident plane waves are considered. Two cases of the movement are assumed: (a) the coated mirror moves parallel to the interface; (b) the coated mirror moves perpendicular to the interface. Various interesting features concerning the variation of the reflection coefficient, angle of reflection, the phase shift and the frequency of the reflected wave, as a function of the velocity of the moving coated mirror, are discussed.
