Abstract

Theoretical conditions giving zero p reflectance {Rp(α) = 0} are discussed for both single and two-layer transparent coatings. The p reflectances of single-film coatings are studied in some detail taking into account variations of thicknesses and refractive indexes. The conditions Rp(45°) = 0 for two-layer coating systems are also discussed.
