The reflective surface is designed to be highly reflective and to minimise dispersion with a GDD of [+ or -]20 fs2, while the back surface is coated with an antireflection coating to maximise transmission.
"When we stack them together, we increase light absorption and efficiency improves to 15 percent with an antireflection coating."
A number of factors [12-21], such as stacking faults in the silicon wafer, refractive index of the antireflection coating, resistance of the encapsulant material, and design of the power station, have been found and demonstrated to be related with the PID behavior.
In this study, we propose a design that adopts bilayer of the absorbers Ti[O.sub.2] and ZnO as an antireflection coating with different RIs to improve the transparency in the visible range with UV protection.

The reflectivity at normal incidence of a Si[O.sub.2]/ZnS double-layer antireflection coating (ARC) on an [Al.sub.0.5][In.sub.0.5]P window layer is typically modeled in front of a [Ga.sub.0.5][In.sub.0.5]P top cell.

To mark the Infinity launch, Waterside is offering customers a free coating upgrade for a three-month period by providing its new and exclusive Pureview 'no bloom' antireflection coating (which offers transmission up to 99.7%) at regular HMC pricing across the product range, including Infinity Sport and Infinity Office.
Also, it is possible to create antireflection coating for artificial media with refractive index close to one [27].
The family of larger aperture optics consists of two different birefringent crystals - crystalline quartz and magnesium fluoride (MgF2) - each with a highly efficient broadband antireflection coating, in an air-spaced design.
