AbstractFor the past 50 years, the Thin Films Group of the National Research Council (NRC) in Canada has successfully developed optical interference coatings that have changed the fabric of our lives. The coatings have been used for everything from protecting paper currency against counterfeiting, to increasing the contrast and efficiency of organic LEDs, to forming components of artificial vision systems used in space shuttles. This article reflects on NRC's past successes, current challenges and future directions.
