Transparent Conductive Coatings
Terms
  • indium tin oxide (ITO) A material widely used as a transparent conductive coating.
  • dielectric coating A high-reflectance coating consisting of alternating layers of quarter-wave film of a higher refractive index and lower refractive index than the substrate. Such coatings can be made very specific to a reflected wavelength or, by varying the layers'...
  • metallic coating A thin layer of metal deposited on the surface of a substrate. The film may serve as a reflector, beamsplitter, neutral density filter or electromagnetic interference filter.
  • mirror coating One or more thin-film  layers of optical material deposited on a mirror blank/substrate in order to enhance the way that substrate reflects light.  For example of optical materials/optical coatings used in this application, see metallic...
  • thin film A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors,...
  • antireflection coating A thin layer of material applied to a lens surface to reduce the amount of reflected energy. Ideally the index of refraction of that material should be equal to the square root of the product of the indices of the material on either side of the...
