Nanostructured anti-reflective glass for lenses, electronic displays, and photovoltaics

Inspired by patterns in the eye of the moth, nanostructures can be created on the surface of glass, allowing all light to transmit through the glass without any interference. Applied on lenses, low light photography is enhanced. Applied on electronic displays, the technology enables sunlight readable screens. Applied on photovoltaics, more light enters the solar panels, enhancing energy conversion. This research project advances current issues in large-scale production of these nanotextured glass, hastening the speed in which Project Edgehog at TandemLaunch, the partner organization, can bring this technology to commercial use.
