Paper Abstract

Ultra-high, broadband transmittance through coated glass windows is demonstrated over a wide range of incident angles. Near perfect 100% transmittance through a glass substrate has been achieved over select spectral bands, and the average transmittance increased to over 97% for photons incident between 0° and 75° with wavelengths between 400 nm and 1600 nm. The measured improvements in transmittance result from coating the windows with a new class of materials consisting of porous SiO2 nanorods.
