Paper Abstract

The topic of antireflection coatings is vast, and it is impossible to review it comprehensively in an article of this size. Here an attempt is made to show how antireflection coatings evolved from inhomogeneous layers, through homogeneous layers with optical thicknesses that were multiples of a quarter wave of some central wavelength, to the modern non-quarter wave designs that, at times, may consist of many tens of layers. Antireflection coatings for the solution of a number of special problems are presented.
