|Abstract:||The optical characteristics of a silver layer deposited on an antireflection subwavelength-structured surface are investigated. The experimental results of the reflectance and the transmittance of several different thicknesses of silver layer on the subwavelength-structured surface are carried out. A subwavelength structure with the spatial period and diameter of about 230 nm and height of about 150 nm on polyethylene terphthalate film is fabricated by microreplication process. It is shown that such an element with the suitable silver layer deposited on an antireflection subwavelength-structured surface has high transmittance and low glare in the visible spectral range and high reflectance in the infrared range. Obviously, the optical film with silver layer can not only obtain the high performance of heat insulation but also give an application in automobile and house windows.|
