Author information

National Research Council, 1500 Montreal Road, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, KIA 0R6.


Measurements are described on the experimental filters submitted to the Third Optical Thin Film Manufacturing Problem in which the object was to produce multilayers with a measured colorimetric performance that is as close as possible to that specified. The perceived colors of the coating, when illuminated with randomly polarized light incident at 7 degrees by a source representing average daylight with a correlated color temperature of approximately 6500 K, were to be yellow and blue, respectively, in light reflected from its two surfaces, and the color was to appear white when viewed in transmission mode. Eleven teams from 7 different countries submitted a total of 18 samples.
