METHOD OF MAKING A SURFACE WITH LOW LIGHT REFLECTION

[Category : - Telecommunications]
[Viewed 120 times]

A process for preparing a surface of an optical article to improve light reflection and light transmission properties while conserving mechanical properties as durability and scratch resistance of the surface. A blank film is deposited on a base article. The film is post processed to convert a flat surface into near close packed array of near hemispherical protuberances. The conversion done in 2 steps. First the film is scratched to honeycomb pattern. Second the article is annealed. The anneal causes sequential transformation of flat film into the array. The transformation starts from scratch lines and go to a center of each honeycomb island cell. It is driven by dewetting phenomena. Characteristic size of the protuberances is controlled by initial film thickness. For low reflectivity of visible light, the initial blanket film is near 150 nm thick.
