New "Invisible Glass" Reduces Reflections

Post by dpc » 28 Oct 2011, 17:17

Invisible glass may solve screen reflection problems

FTA:

What NEG has done is added an anti-reflection film to both the front and back of the glass that are only nanometers thick. By doing this luminance reflectance is only diminished by 0.1% over a more typical sheet of glass. But the real benefit comes in how much reflections are reduced.
Look at a typical sheet of glass and you will see about 8% of the light reflected off of it. With NEG’s anti-reflection film in place, that is reduced to just 0.5%.
