Broadband antireflection coatings, universally applicable for quartz, glass, and plastics
The patented AR-plas® and AR-plas2 processes combine thin vapor-deposited layers with nanostructured layers. The very low effective refractive indices of the nanostructures allow perfect transitions to the air refractive index. Very wide spectral ranges and high angles of incidence can be addressed. The technology is particularly suitable for serial coating of optical parts with a size of a few millimeters up to 25 centimeters.
