New applications in optoelectronics, photonics, telecommunication, displays, optical data processing, biomedicine, sensors, energy control, automobile, aerospace and architecture stimulate important developments in the physics and technology of optical coatings. This article focuses on the latest advances in the areas of new optical film systems and devices, new optical coating materials and film fabrication techniques, process control and monitoring, and different advanced applications. In particular, it will focus on optical films that combine optical design with micro-structural features tailored on nanometer and micrometer scales. Evaluation of film stability and integrity in harsh industrial environments, and their compatibility with organic polymers, are also important.
