AntiReflection Coating Assignment
30 Nov 2010  Contributor(s):: Alex Small
This is a guided activity for students to study the design of an antireflection coating. The student is first asked to do a simple calculation by hand, to determine the proper thickness for an antireflection coating in a standard situation. The student then uses the nanoHUB tool "PhotonicsRT:...
