Paper Abstract

The design of an antireflection coating on glass for the visible spectrum is made in order to examine the performance of AR coatings composed of only oxide layers compared to coatings made using oxides and fluorides. The materials employed for such design are silicon dioxide and titanium dioxide both of very common use in optical coating manufacture. The design method is based on a random search approach that is especially useful when the examined problem could have multiple solutions. The results obtained in terms of reduction of reflectance losses and of sensitivity to thickness errors demonstrate a good production feasibility.
