Abstract : The objective of this workshop on optical thin films was to generate a list of basic research efforts which should be pursued in thin film processing techniques and thin film diagnostics which would lead to the development of more damage resistant, more predictable and repeatable thin film coatings which would exhibit long life and stable performance. A group of invited papers covering laser damage, surface preparation, film microstructure, deposition techniques and diagnostics were presented. Discussion of the research needs to advance basic understanding and improvement of optical thin films is summarized, and a prioritized research program which has been generated by the Workshop Advisory Committee is given.
