Author ' s personal copy Evaporation of uniform antireflection coatings on hemispherical lenses to enhance infrared antenna gain

Infrared dipole-coupled bolometers receive radiation more efficiently when illuminated through a high permittivity, antireflection (AR) coated, hemispherical immersion lens. To maintain the enhanced responsivity for all illumination angles, the AR coating must be uniform over the hemispherical surface. An evaporation method for depositing a uniform AR… CONTINUE READING
