    Moth Eyes Inspire Antireflective Coating

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers at Tokyo University of Science have developed an antireflective coating inspired by the biostructures in moth eyes. Previous attempts at re-creating the antireflective structure, developed through years of evolution, yielded varying degrees of success; despite recent advances in nanoscience that allows the creation of such technology, barriers of scalability and manufacturing costs remain.

    A previous attempt by the researchers created moth-eye molds made from glassy carbon etched with an oxygen ion beam.

    “Producing glassy carbon substrates requires the use of powder metallurgy technology, which is difficult to produce molds with a large area,” explained Jun Taniguchi, a professor at Tokyo University of…
