Anti-reflection coatings are also known as AR-coatings or antireflective coatings
. Here, the optical reflectivity of the glass surface for a specific wavelength or a whole range of wavelengths (so called broadband coating or BBAR-coating) is minimized. It means that the AR coatings increase the transmission in a custom-defined area. Furthermore, energy losses can be significantly reduced. Most of our AR-coated glass windows are used in the field of laser welding and laser cutting.
This industry uses those windows as a protective glass to defend their expensive and high optical quality laser lens from material splashes during their laser welding and laser cutting process.
