Anti-Reflection Coating

  • Anti-reflection coating is a type of optical coating that is applied to the surface of a material to reduce its reflection and increase its transmittance. The coating works by interfering with the reflection of light at the surface of the material, causing a reduction in the amount of light that is reflected back to the viewer. The result is that the surface appears clearer and more transparent, and the amount of light that passes through the material is increased.
  • Anti-reflection coatings are commonly used in eyeglasses, camera lenses, microscopes, and other optical devices. The coating is typically made from thin layers of material that are deposited onto the surface of the material using a variety of methods, such as vacuum deposition or spin coating. The exact composition and thickness of the coating will depend on the material and application.
