A recursive calculation of reflection and transmission coefficients based on classical Fresnel formulas is performed for dielectric-metal-dielectric-type screens. The metal is assumed to be silver, while the dielectric layer is formed of semiconductors or dielectrics with index of refraction varying from n = 1.8 to n = 2.6. A BÉSM-6 computer was used to calculate various optical characteristics of such screens in the visible and IR ranges. It is shown that systems with n = 2.2-2.6 show the greatest promise for use as heat reflecting coatings.
