1 Review
Practical, user-oriented reference for engineers who must incorporate and specify coatings for filters, antiglare effects, polarization, or other purposes in optical or electro-optical systems design. It focuses on preparation techniques and characteristics of commercially available products and provides information needed to determine what type of filter is needed to solve a particular problem, what its limitations are, and how to care for it.

This book is great for the coating technician with some background education. Rare in its field, this book should be kept in the coating lab for technicians. Although a good book for the engineer or coating designer, this book is for techs.
Well written and easy to follow.
