Executive Summary | A variety of materials are used in thin film optics applications. Customers of thin film optics may be interested in becoming familiar with these materials and the important differences which make one material set more appropriate for your application. We propose that the most important intrinsic material considerations are material index, material bandgap and absorption edge. These material properties are discussed as they affect thin film optics performance in different scenarios.
