Antireflection Coating of Optics for Optimum Results
An antireflection coating is used for antireflection of planar and highly curved optics, enabling you to generate high-contrast images.
An antireflection coating (or AR coating) is intended for antireflection of optics, such as lenses, objective lenses, prisms and display screens. In this process, plasma ions ensure that light reflection is reduced. This guarantees that images are high-contrast and interference-free.
For example, if you are working with an objective lens that is made up of multiple lenses, these lenses require antireflection. Otherwise, around eight percent of the intensity of the incidental light beam will be lost per lens. Antireflection prevents any reflections from causing interference and blurring the image.
The antireflection coating can be optimized for individual wavelengths or adapted to a wide range of wavelengths. This makes the antireflection suitable for both lasers and for VIS and NIR. Jenoptik also offers coatings for highly curved optics, where our experts use the patented AR-plas® process. This is a structuring process that is primarily used on internal surfaces.
