May, 2023: Newport Thin Film Laboratory has developed a vast array of anti-reflection coatings optimized in the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared wavelengths. NTFL can design and deposit custom anti-reflection coatings to customer specifications. If you are not sure how to specify your coating, our coating engineers will work with you to identify the best design for your needs. NTFL offers low-temperature anti-reflection coatings for polymer optics.

For more information on anti-reflection (AR) coatings such as single layer anti-reflection (SLAR), V-coat (VAR), broad-band anti-reflection (BBAR), and dual-band anti-reflection coatings please contact us

Key Benefits

  • Significant reduction of the reflection loss incurred at each surface.
  • Reasonable durability.
  • Performs well for a wide range of applications (e. g., wide wavelength ranges and high angles).  
  • Coatings on Substrate dimensions from 1mm to 550mm Dia.

 Substrate Materials

  • Glass
  • Polymers
  • Crystals
  • Semiconductors


AR coatings can be designed to meet adhesion, abrasion, temperature, humidity, salt and solubility of various Mil-Spec and ISO specifications.
