Optical properties of $TiO_{2}$. Ag filrns and $TiO_{2}/Ag/TiO_{2}$ multilayer filrns with different thickness were predicted using the transfer matrix, and these results were compared with real transmittance curves of the sputterdeposited films. With the complex refractive indices, it was possible to predict transmittance characteristics which were close to real data for $TiO_{2}$ and Ag films. Due to the diffusion and agglomeration of Ag during $TiO_{2}$ deposition, optical properties of the sputterdeposited $TiO_{2}/Ag/TiO_{2}$ films were found to be very different from the transmittance curves predicted using the transfer matrix. Using deposition of 4nm-thick or 6nm-thick TI layers as a diffusion barrier, however, the transmittance curves of $TiO_{2}/Ti/Ag/Ti/TiO_{2}$ five-layer films became similar to ones predicted for $TiO_{2}/Ag/TiO_{2}$ threeiayer films.
