Optical properties of overcoated microspheres are calculated and compared to those of planar multilayers, in regard to the sphere diameter. The classical criteria for in-situ optical monitoring is analyzed to control the growth of films on the spheres. Most coatings are multi-dielectric quarter-wave stacks used in the thin film community.
