Abstract [en]

The current focus in Swedish policy towards national security and high-end technical systems, together with a rapid development in multispectral sensor technology, adds to the utility of developing advanced materials for spectral design in signature management applications. A literature study was performed probing research databases for advancements. Qualitative text analysis was performed using a six-indicator instrument: spectrally selective reflectance; low gloss; low degree of polarization; low infrared emissivity; non-destructive properties in radar and in general controllability of optical properties. Trends are identified and the most interesting materials and coating designs are presented with relevant performance metrics. They are sorted into categories in the order of increasing complexity: pigments and paints, one-dimensional structures, multidimensional structures (including photonic crystals), and lastly biomimic and metamaterials. The military utility of the coatings is assessed qualitatively. The need for developing a framework for assessing the military utility of incrementally increasing the performance of spectrally selective coatings is identified.

Abstract [en]

Optical material properties have been studied in a wide wavelength range. Theaim is future use of spectral design for camou age. The main characterization techniques used in this work are Refection Spectroscopy, Scatterometry (BRDF) and Mueller Matrix Ellipsometry. Six camouflage evaluation criteria based on reflection, emissivity, polarization, gloss, dynamic coloring and broadband properties, are to a greater or lesser degree related to the interaction between light and materia. Almost all are connected to the work of this thesis and are exemplied through dierent material categories with potential for use in camouföage applications. The included papers presents: a broad band (visible-infrared-microwave) study, two examples of dynamic optical properties of thin lms, and polarization and scattering properties of a natural surface.
