  • polymer A material whose molecular structure consists of long chains made up by the repetition of many (usually thousands) of similar groups of atoms.
  • protective coating A film applied to a coated or uncoated optical surface primarily for protecting this surface from mechanical abrasion, from chemical corrosion, or from both. For example, a thin layer of silicon monoxide may be added to protect an aluminized surface.
