The precise control of the film thickness in the film deposition process is the key to depositing optical coating, it is difficult to get ideal film thickness by general turn-point value monitoring. The characteristics of four film thickness monitoring techniques, quartz crystal monitoring technique and common reflectance overshoot-turning point monitoring technique and turn-point monitoring technique with different monitoring wavelength at each layer and mutative overshoot-turning point monitoring technique, are analyzed in this thesis. The contrast experiments adopting the four monitoring techniques respectively to a non-quarter A.R. coating were made under the same technical condition. The experiment results have indicated that mutative overshoot-turning point monitoring technique can get more precise thickness control to non-quarter films than the other thickness monitoring techniques.
