Abstract

Several different thin-film design problems were solved by the comprehensive-search, gradual-evolution, minus-filter, flip-flop, and inverse-Fourier-transform, thin-film synthesis methods. In order to compare the relative effectiveness of each method, the results obtained and computation times required by these techniques for primary, intermediate, and final solutions are given.
