Antireflection Coatings

Antireflection coatings on plastic have a myriad of practical applications such as glare reductions on the display on smartphones when outdoors, computer monitors, and eyeglasses. Recently, a team of researchers at Penn State have created an Antireflection Coatings that advances on existing coatings to such an extent that it can make transparent plastics, like Plexiglas, virtually invisible. The team made the new discovery when trying to build higher-efficiency solar panels.
