Motheye and MARAG : Nano-Scaled Anti-Reflective Coating

April 22nd, 2005 | Filed under: Fabrication Tech, Materials, Nanotech, Products | 1 Comment »

The eyes of moths have evolved to collect as much light as possible without reflection, in order to prevent moths being detected by predators. Motheye and MARAGâ„¢ films mimic this property with nano-scaled bumps reducing reflectivity to less than 1%.

    OptiCast is interested in applying motheye microstructures to ophthalmic lenses. We would be very interested in exploring a joint venture in this arena, if you can aid us in the manufacturing master molds.

    Please respond if you have an interest.
