About this book
Thin Films on Glass. This book is one of a series reporting on international research and development activities conducted by the Schott Group companies. With the series Schott aims to provide an overview of its activites for scientists, engineers, and managers from all branches of industry worldwide where glass and glass ceramics are of interest. Each volume begins with a chapter providing a general idea of the current problems, results, and trends relating to the subject treated. This volume describes the development of active and passive thin films on glass at Schott. Design strategies, the use of conventional and newly developed production technologies of thin films on glass, and the application of characterization methods for the structure of thin films and their properties are reported. Several examples illustrate how the the best suited film materials and deposition and processing parameters. may be selected. Particular chapters treat the topics of flip-flop layers (coatings consisting of very thin high- and low-index layers), wave-guiding films, Rugate filters and gradient devices, optical transducers, laser coatings, cold light mirrors, sol-gel solutions for thin film production with dip coating processes, the coating of window panes with solar reflection coatings, and rear-view mirrors for cars. The book is conceived as a monograph. The individual chapters, however, are written by leading Schott experts on the corresponding subjects. In all the chapters, tables and examples are chosen to introduce the reader to thin film science and technology. Numerous references are given to more detailed literature.
