  6. Anti-Reflection Coating Assignment

    30 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alex Small

    This is a guided activity for students to study the design of an anti-reflection coating. The student is first asked to do a simple calculation by hand, to determine the proper thickness for an anti-reflection coating in a standard situation. The student then uses the nanoHUB tool "PhotonicsRT:...
