Zero error and even corrective coatings are possible but I doubt that many coaters would be willing to make that investment.

I understand many buy one of Carl's mirrors uncoated and then have the enhanced coatings done anyway. Strange though, I had also heard that when Carl does have a mirror coated, he uses Spectrum which I understood only offered an enhanced coatings.

Since the dielectrics are not good conductors, What are they contained in that alows the Electro Discharge to evaporate the materials. Or instead, are they made into some form of arc electrode?
