An organic resin laminate comprising an organic resin substrate and a multilayer coating system on a surface of the substrate is provided. The multilayer coating system can include a plasma layer which is a dry hard coating obtained from plasma polymerization of an organosilicon compound, and an intermediate layer (II) on the substrate which is a cured coating of a wet coating composition comprising (A) a specific reactive UV absorber, (B) a multi-functional (meth)acrylate, and (C) a photopolymerization initiator. (B) a multifunctional (meth)acrylate, and (C) a photopolymerization initiator. The laminate has a high level of abrasion resistance and improved adhesion and weather resistance.


A method of inspecting a defect present at a surface portion of a photomask blank having at least one thin film formed on a substrate by use of the inspecting optical system. The method includes setting the distance between the defect and an objective lens of an inspecting optical system to a defocus distance, applying inspection light to the defect through the objective lens, collecting reflected light from the region irradiated with the inspection light, through the objective lens, as a magnified image, identifying a light intensity variation portion of the magnified image, and determining the rugged shape of the defect on the basis of a variation in light intensity of the light intensity variation portion of the magnified image.
