Wet chemical processing of ceramics, glasses and inorganic-organic hybrids for optical applications is rapidly developing. The present review focuses on optical films obtained by wet chemical processing, with emphasis on recent developments in ferroelectric and magneto-optic films, rare earth lasers and surface patterned films. Where appropriate, the subject matter is illustrated with recent results from our laboratories.
