Prognostications for the Future of Vacuum Coating

Kevin Lifsey

Presented by Dr. Charles A. Bishop, C.A. Bishop Consulting Ltd.

Since I gave the first of these personal views of the vacuum industry (1) there
have been some areas that have changed and others that have remained static and
other topics have caught my attention.

As before the opinions expressed in this paper are mine & in no way represent
the views of AIMCAL. I have tried to look at the broader picture and where possible I have included references to support my comments. Hopefully the topics I have chosen will be of some interest & will stimulate some discussions.

Incidentally if any of you have a topic that you think merits some attention in
next years Almanac please do not hesitate to contact me with your thoughts.
