OPTICAL COATING DESIGN WITH THE ESSENTIAL MACLEOD
An indispensable guide to getting the absolute best out of the Essential Macleod software. Authored by Angus Macleod and Christopher Clark, this book is a must-have for every level of design engineer. The newly released edition presents an up to date tutorial covering techniques, examples, tips and tricks with the Essential Macleod. Why do we need this book when a comprehensive and detailed manual is supplied with the software? Learning to use the software from a manual is like learning to speak a language from a dictionary. Rather than telling you what the software does, the book tells you what you can do with the software.

  1. Introduction
  2. Optical Coating Fundamentals
  3. A Quick Tour of the Essential Macleod
  4. Features of the Essential Macleod
  5. Setting up a Job in the Essential Macleod
