Workshop Agenda - This 3 day workshop will provide practical information regarding the designing, measurement, and manufacturing of optical thin films.  Coursework will be presented by Alexander Tikhonravov, Michael Trubetskov, Jennifer Kruschwitz, and Brian Sullivan. 

The Workshop will be broken down into two parts: one day for OptiLayer Beginner users, and two days for OptiLayer Intermediate/Advanced users. An attendee can choose to attend only the Beginner session, only the Intermediate/Advanced session, or both sessions at a reduced rate.

Participants will learn skills necessary to easily reduce coating design sensitivity, evaluate manufacturing errors, calculate coating losses due to scatter and inhomogeneity, understand ellipsometric and spectrophotometric measurement limitations, characterize dielectric and electrochromic thin films, and increase manufacturing yields.

Workshop Registration - see attached form for pricing and registration requirements.
