Abstract

Philip Baumeister pioneered the design of optical thin films by computer methods. He has published many important papers on various aspects of optical coatings, and he initiated the Optical Society of America's Topical Meetings on Optical Interference Coatings. Most important, during his time at the University of Rochester and thereafter, he trained and mentored generations of researchers and engineers in the theory and practice of thin-film interference coatings. Originally, a talk was prepared to celebrate his 75th birthday at the ninth Topical Meeting on Optical Interference Coatings. Because of his untimely demise on 22 October 2003, it was presented at the conference to honor his memory. This is a written version of the tribute that contains a comprehensive list of Philip Baumeister's various publications.
