Abstract
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of applying an advanced, multifunctional coating system to aircraft window materials to increase their resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and to improve eye protection from low-power laser exposure. The project will study the control of transmission at selected laser hazard wavelengths and the reduction of solar effects from IR and UV wavelengths. The multifunctional coatings will be designed to produce laser absorption/reflection profiles suitable for a wide variety of window requirements. In addition, the coating system will have an increased resistance to abrasion and scratching and an increased resistance to ballistic fragment impact.
