Abstract : The theory of two-layer, antireflection coatings is presented with special emphasis on the absorption in the coating and the effect of thickness variations on the reflectivity and transmitted phase front. Coating designs for 10.6-micron window materials (potassium chloride, zinc selenide, cadmium telluride, and germanium) are systematically cataloged. (Author)
