Title: Antireflection Coatings 1: BASICS

Abstract

Reflections off windows, eyeglass lenses, computer and television screens, and optical components can be very annoying and sometimes dangerous. Reflection of light incident on an optical window or optical component can degrade the performance of the window and the optical system associated with the window over its operating spectral range, whether it is the human eye or an optical device. Thin films can help us with this problem.
