antireflective coatings using organically modified silica and polyimide via solution casting method.
The coating can improve the transmission of lighting display screens, windows, optical filters, solar cells and light detectors (1-4).
The first antireflection (AR)
In 1817, Fraunhofer discovered the coating on the glass substrate (5).
A few years later, Poisson and fenfresnel define the AR phenomenon as destructive interference between light reflected from the air --
Coating and coating
Therefore, the AR coating should show the refraction index between the air and the substrate.
For an ideal uniform single layer, the film thickness and refractive index can be used to quantify the anti-reflection degree using the following two equations (7), (8): [n. sub. c]= [Square root ()[n. sub. s]x [n. sub. m])](1)[d. sub. 1]= [lambda]/4[n. sub. 1](2)where [n. sub. c], [n. sub. m], [n. sub. s]
It is the refractive index of the coating, medium and substrate. Where [d. sub. 1]
Thickness of AR coating and [lambda]
The wavelength of accidental light that usually falls on the substrate in the air.
As the index of light (RI)
The material is inherent, and the atypical way to change the RI is to add air to the matrix in two or three dimensions (9-11). The [n. sub. c]
The best AR performance can be achieved by adjusting the hole degree in the film.
There are a variety of other techniques to make films with adjustable refractive index such as chemical etching, vacuum deposition, and sol--gel method.
One way is to rough the surface by chemical etching to produce a sub-visible-wave-
Scalp length (12-15).
The main disadvantages are the time-consuming and use of harmful etchant such as HF and [H. sub. 2]Si[F. sub. 4]. Si[F. sub. 4].
As an alternative to chemical corrosion, chemical deposition is also an important technology for the preparation of AR Films (16-19).
Surface roughness and particles can be formed on the surface of the film by sputtering (16-18)
Physical Vapor Deposition (19), and plasma-
Enhanced chemical vapor deposition (20).
AR coating can also be prepared by aself-in multi-layer process
Assembly method (21-23).
Both the spin and dip processes are used, sometimes in combination. A post-

Silicone rubber and fluorine-based are tied to silicon anarticle to reduce the surface area of silica particles, thus promoting the migration of silica particles to air
Coating interface during coating drying (29).
In order to change the surface energy of the modified silica nanoparticles, the content of fluorine-substituted hydrocarbons has changed.
The size of the modified silica particles should be small enough to reduce the loss of light due to scattering and other losses (30)
Therefore, the diameter of silica particles prepared in this paper is about 50 nm.
The synthesis of fluorine-silica particles prepared three fluorine-silica gels by changing the mixing agent, as shown in Scheme 2 below.

For comparison, the vis spectrum of pi is included in each diagram.
All coatings loaded with fluorine silica show a higher transmission ratio than pi films, which indicates an increase in AR properties of the coating.
As the concentration of silica increases from 0, the transmission ratio increases. 5% to 1%.
However, the average transmission ratio of the coating with a silicon content of 88% is 3%, which is comparable to the coating containing I % silica.
When pentone (CPT)
After use, the average transmission ratio of the three coatings is almost the same, but higher than pi (see Fig. 5b).
Regardless of the solvent, the coating has a considerable transmission ratio under the same silica load.
In cyclevone, the periodicity of interference seems to be more obvious than that of DMAc.
When Silicon fluoride-
30 for paint (see Fig. 6a and b)
In DMAc, the transmission ratio is proportional to the silica content, so the transmission ratio of all coatings is higher.
In CPT, however, the transmission ratio seems to have nothing to do with the silica load.
The transmission ratio did not increase significantly compared to pi, except for 3 wt %, the transmission spectra of AR coatings made of three different molecular weight silicone rubber modified silica particles in DMAc and CPT are shown below in Fig.
7 and 8, respectively (
Grafting silica with low molecular weight silicone: LPDMA-silica;
Positive migration silica gel of medium relative molecular mass: MPDMS-silica;
Grafting silicone rubber with high molecular weight: h principle-silica).
Unlike fluorine-silica gel, the transmission ratio of the coating did not increase with the increase of the colloidal content.

Silica was prepared in CPT, with an average transmission rate slightly higher than pi, but lower than the corresponding dmac formulation.

At 5% to 3%, the transmission ratio of the corresponding coating is gradually reduced until it is lower than pi (see Fig. 8b).

Regarding the AR attribute, as shown in the figure. 9.
The transmission ratio of AR coating is 0.

The emission of the silica AR coating is 89% higher than that of pi, 4%, while the emission of the other two molecular weight MPDMS and hpdm is lower than that of pi (see Fig. 9b).
For AR coatings containing 3% silicone rubber modified silica, the transmission ratio decreases with the increase of the molecular weight of silicone rubber under 700 nm.
At temperatures above 700 nm,

Over the entire wavelength range, the transmission ratio of silica-containing coatings and any other ARcoatings in this study is the lowest.
Therefore, the molecular weight of the grafted MFC does affect the transmission ratio.

It can be speculated that higher molecular weight or higher grafting coverage is not necessarily better for AR performance.
To study the effect of solvent on AR properties, two solvents, CPT (cyclopentanone)and DMAc (
Was selected as a general solvent for the preparation of AR coatings.
The evaporation rate was only considered in this study.
There is no discussion about whether the interaction of solvent with polymer or colloidal is different.
Pi is soluble in CPT and DMAc.
The CPT theevapation rate is three times that of the DMAc determined byexposure 2 ml sample bottle solvent, in a one-month air cover.
In the case of preparing the coating with fluorine Silicon10 inCPT (see Fig. 5a)
, In DMAc, the average transmission ratio is equivalent to the same load (see Fig. 5b).
This means AR performance of fluorine Silicon
The coating has nothing to do with the steaming rate of the solvent type.
With the decrease of fluorineica-
10 to silicon fluoride-
30, the transmission of the coating prepared in CPT is lower than that prepared in DMAc (see Fig. 6a andb).
When CPT is used to prepare lsmc modified silica containing coating, its transmission is lower than that prepared with DMAc (seeFig. 7a and b).
In addition, unlike AR coatings from DMAc, AR coatings from CPT have similar transmission ratios throughout the colloidal load range.
Therefore, the choice of solvent and the activation rate of the solvent can play a certain role in the transparency of the paint.
SEM representation of AR coatings as hierarchical structures can influence and enhance surface roughness (42), (43)
The effect of solvent on the surface distribution of colloidal particles was studied by SEM.
In this study, surface coverage was calculated using image processing software.
SEM of silica-
10 and silicon fluoride-
In both DMAc and CPT, there are 30 images. 10-13.
Overall, SEM shows the random distribution of particles in the air
It is also clear that surface coverage as a general trend depends on the colloidal load, but the load of 3 wt % indicates that this trend is not simple.
Quantification of surface coverage is listed in Table 3.
If there is no significant difference in aggregation, a higher coverage is expected to result in a higher transmission ratio.
In a coating containing 0.
5% of fluorine Silicon-
10, surface covering from 1. 7% in CPT to 2. 2% in DMAc.
And 1% fluorine-silicon coating-
In DMAc, the surface coverage rate of 10 is twice that of CPT, and 3% of fluorine Silicon-
10 of the coatings contained in the DMAc show 6.
3% surface coverage compared to 2. 5% in CPT.
Compared with the corresponding increase observed in DMAc, there was less increase in the coverage of colloidal surfaces in CPT.
Also observed in SEM (see Figs. 12 and 13)
The surface morphology of the coated substrate is smoother in dmac than in CPT.
As shown in the figure, a smooth background surface can reduce the optical loss by scattering, resulting in a higher transmission ratio7a and b.
For fluorine silica gel bodies with low molar content (fluorosilica-30)
, The coating in DMAc is much higher than the coating surface coverage in CPT.
In this case, the transmission ratio is also affected accordingly as the film surface coverage increases.
By comparing the coating of fluorine-containing silicon
10 with fluorine Silicon-
30 in samesolvent, the surface coverage of the former is higher than that of the latter.
The higher the Alkyflouro content, the more colloid on the surface.
Interestingly, the surface coverage of the coating is 0.
5% and 1% fluorine Silicon-
10 comparable to 1% and 3% fluorine Silicon in CPT
30, respectively in DMAc.
As expected, surface coverage data is consistent with transmission data (see Figs. 5and 6).
Interestingly, the accumulation of fluorine-Silicon Soil Colloid does not increase with the increase of load, which is contrary to the migration of silicone rubber.

Silica is calculated and listed in Table 4 and SEM and AFM images are shown from the figure. 14-17.
Surface coverage is expected to increase as the silica load increases.
With the increase of silicon concentration of lmcp-AR coating, the degree of aggregation increases
Silicone formulated inDMAc.
The combination of aggregation and surface coverage makes the effect of silicone rubber grafting on the transmission ratio more complicated.

Therefore, the transparency of the film is slightly higher than that of the pi film.
As shown in the figure, similar images are obtained with AFM14d.

With the increase of the colloidal content, the surface covering only increased slightly, but was lower than the coating prepared in DMAc.

Silica exhibits moderate to severe aggregation and low surface coverage (see Figs. 16 and 17).
This is consistent with the results of UV--
Visible transmission ratio (see Fig. 8).
Obviously, the longer the silicone rubber chain, the higher the tendency of colloidal aggregation.
SEM showed that when the surface of the modified silica gel is rough without significant aggregation, the reflection ratio of the polymer is suppressed (44). The MPDMS-

Silica aggregates are formed by entangled soft silicone rubber chains on the surface of the particles (45).
In the current work, Broadband AR coatings have been obtained in the wavelength regions of 400 to 1000 nm.
For 3% fluorine silicon, the emission gain of 4% and 3% is obtained10 and 1%
In the entire visible wavelength range, silica contains coatings, respectively. Using asol--
Li and others, gel method. (21-22), (26)
The maximum increase in transmission 2 was reported. 6%-4.
5%, but only at a specific wavelength, not the entire visible spectrum.
The peak transmission ratio is not related to the thickness of the film, which is not surprising.
In contrast, the AR layer is 250 nm, and the wavelength corresponding to the maximum transmission ratio is 1000 nm (7).
This explains why the transmission ratio of all AR coatings in this study (see Figs. 7-10)
With the increase of the wavelength, there is an increase in the overall trend, regardless of the molecular weight and solvent of the modified silicone grease, silicone rubber used.
More importantly, it was observed that as long as no obvious high concentration Silicon aggregation was formed from the SEM image, the transmission ratio increased with the increase of silica colloidal content, which was similar to the discovery of Li.
In their study, surface roughness was significantly enhanced when the number of deposition cycles increased.
With the increase of the number of deposition cycles, the maximum transmission ratio is reduced, because the silica nanoparticles that are subsequently adsorbed prefer to be filled or seated in the gap between the existing nanoparticles, resulting in more at the same time22).
The advantage of the colloidal method in this manuscript is that the transmission ratio is affected throughout the visible wavelength range and appears to have nothing to do with the wavelength (see Figs. 6-9).
This solution casting is simple and economical for large-scale production of ar coatings
Scale the substrate in industry compared to most previously reported processes.
Vacuum coating systems used in industry are more expensive and complex.
And other processes widely reported by other researchers, such as double coating and rotating coating technology (2), (21-26)
It\'s hard to scale-
Prepare for manufacturing
Conclusion in this study, several factors play a role in determining the properties of AR.
The influencing factors are: silica loading, molecular weight of grafted polymer, grafting density and solvent evaporation rate.
For fluorine-containing silicon coatings where aggregation is not a problem, a higher silica load increases the surface coverage and therefore a higher transmission ratio is obtained.
3% fluorine-silicon coating-10 (DMAc)
The highest transmission ratio of all AR coatings evaluated in this study was shown. For the PDMS-
In the silicon coating system, the relationship between the silicon load and the transmission ratio is more complicated.
Particle aggregation on the surface is observed.
Aggregation depends on the deposition and molecular weight of grafted silicone rubber.
The high molecular weight of silicone rubber chain on silica particles increases the aggregation of silica particles and reduces the transmission ratio.
However, among these two factors, the molecular weight of the grafted silicone rubber is more important than the load.
Solvent evaporation rate affects AR properties of fluorine-silicon coating and silicone rubber solution pouring methodSilicon coating.
A slower evaporation solvent facilitates the migration of silica particles
The coating interface results in a higher transmission ratio.
Roll toroll solution casting production line can manufacture AR coating.
