Summary This Spotlight gives a general overview of the durability of optical coatings and various durability tests referring to available civilian and military standards and specifications. It will allow a quick detection of the coating testing durability requirements and test conditions in MIL-Specs and other standards or specifications according to requirements defined in the relevant drawings or coating specifications. Intended for optical designers, this Spotlight is also useful for optical coating inspectors
