Abstract
We report an innovative approach for the fabrication of highly light transmissive, antireflective optical interfaces. This is possible due to the discovery that metallic nanoparticles may be used as a lithographic mask to etch nonstraightforward structures into fused silica, which results in a quasihexagonal pattern of hollow, pillar-like protuberances. The far reaching optical performance of these structures is demonstrated by reflection and transmission measurements at oblique angles of incidence over a broad spectral region ranging from deep-ultraviolet to infrared light.
