MothEye Non-Reflective Display Coating Kills Glare and Improves Contrast

Sub-wavelength nanostructures virtually eliminate glare and minimize reflection while enhancing contrast and light transmission to over 99% in the visible wavelengths. Sony Chemical has developed manufacturing expertise in this nanostructure coating, which is called “MothEye” because it emulates the hexagonal cells and nanostructures of the eye of a moth. A roll-to-roll production method has been developed.

The technology reduces reflection over broad ranges of wavelength and angles of incidence up to 30 degrees. The technology produces the effect with a single coating that can be applied to display surfaces. It enhances perceived contrast of the images by 1000%. Currently, the coating is not durable to the touch. Sony Chemical also seeks partner organizations that can help enhance the durability of the coating, as well as help develop new applications to use it.
