Optical monitoring plays a critical role in optical coatings. Advances in optical metrology and computing power enabled creating fully automated optical monitoring systems. Different types of optical monitoring systems exist today, including systems using direct and indirect monitoring, transmission and reflection, single wavelength and broadband etc.

In this webinar hosted by the OSA Thin Films Technical Group, Dr. Binyamin Rubin from Veeco Instruments will cover classification of optical monitoring systems (OMS) to demonstrate how OMS characteristics affect its performance. Algorithms and strategies used in optical monitoring will also be discussed during the webinar and examples of advanced filters produced with different optical monitoring systems will be demonstrated.
What You Will Learn:
  • Advantages and limitations of different optical monitoring systems
  • Strategies and algorithms used in optical monitoring 
  • How characteristics of optical monitoring system can be tailored to specific application
Who Should Attend:
  • Optical coating engineers and scientists 
  • Engineers involved in development of optical coating equipment 
  • Scientists/engineers who designs optical systems and/or  use coated optical components
