Biomimetic Surfaces for High-Performance Optics



original image

High-performance antireflective and antifogging surfaces are fabricated on planar silica substrates and planconvex lenses. Such surfaces dramatically suppress reflection over a large range of wavelengths and a large field of view. Additionally, the ARS surfaces exhibit high-quality superhydrophilic properties. For antireflective and antifogging applications, the ARS surfaces exhibit more high-quality mechanical stability and better durability than multilayered films.
