Features and capabilities:
Can treat multilayers with any number of coherent and incoherent layer in any position and for any Incidence angle using a Generalized Scattering Matrix Method
Can compute total light Reflectance, Transmittance, internal Absorption and internal Energy Flux
Can do thickness determination by fitting of experimental R and T spectra
EMA (Effective Medium Approximation) for mixed phase materials is integrated in the structure editor
