Anti-Reflective Coatings


North American Coating Laboratories (NACL) design anti-reflective coatings that eliminate reflection, while promoting the transmission of light waves at intended wavelength ranges. With over 90 years of thin-film design experience on staff, NACL is confident that our expert team can design an AR coating to satisfy even the most demanding specifications.

Anti-reflective solutions diffuse both external and internal light waves that combine to negate the light transmitted through the substrate. As light passes from one medium such as air to another, likely an optical substrate, the difference between the refractive indices in the corresponding mediums create transitional light wave differences which invariably amplify the amount of light reflected. The reflected light accumulates and can greatly reduce the acuity of the display substrate. This accumulation of light and negated display acuity leads to displayed information becoming indistinguishable. This method of light interference is referred to as destructive interference of light.

Here are some of our most popular anti-reflective coating designs. Do you have a complex set of specifications? Connect with us at 866-216-6225 ext 108, to discuss your program in more detail.
