OPTICAL COATINGS DESIGN BY GENETIC ALGORITHMS
Read the full article
A new approach for multilayer optical coatings design by evolutionary strategies on the basis of genetic algorithms is reported. The coding mode of alternative decisions is offered, and genetic operators for realization of the simple genetic algorithm are developed as well. The possibilities of the offered synthesis method are shown on the example of 3-, 5- and 7-layer achromatic antireflection coatings design. Rates of procedure convergence depending on entrance functional parameters are investigated.
