AbstractThin film design is loosely subdivided in two categories: refinement and synthesis, where synthesis refers to different ways of generating potentially complex solutions virtually from scratch, without the need for special starting designs. This chapter first reviews several successful thin film synthesis approaches. It then discusses the desensitization of the solutions to manufacturing errors and gives several examples of hybrid situations outside the classical framework, where the interference in the coating is not the only concern or where the geometry of the problem significantly complicates the modeling.
