Wet chemical processing of ceramics, glasses and inorganic-organic hybrids in the form of films has a large number of both proven and potential optical applications. The present review will focus on progress since 1990 in the areas of ferroelectric films, electrochromic and photochromic films, planar waveguides, and NLO films. Where appropriate, advances will be illustrated by results obtained in our laboratories.
