Hi,
I'm new to Optic field, as a whole science field.
I've been studying other (and almost 100% irrelevant) science fields in life, and through education and university.

but found optics is just another interesting and attractive subject to my mind.

have been reading online papers last weeks, and have many many questions, but to start :

  • Anyone can recommend books/forums/whatever starting me up on subject of Optical coatings ?
  • If I want to fabricate a coated layer of glass (or whatever recommended), acting as a very narrow band-pass filter, where do I start ?

any word, names, links, experiments, anything is welcomed.
you can answer me with a list of scattered words, i'll search them up. (Wink)
I won't get tired of reading/learning.

thanks.

For Optics, I can happily recommend Hecht:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Optics-Eugene-Hecht/dp/0805385665/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1534323725&sr=8-3&keywords=hecht+optics

It's a brilliant book!
