Tatiana V. Amotchkina, "Empirical expression for the minimum residual reflectance of normal- and oblique-incidence antireflection coatings," Appl. Opt. 47, 3109-3113 (2008)

A new empirical expression for estimating minimum achievable residual reflectance of antireflection (AR) coatings is presented. The expression gives an accurate approximation of the minimum residual reflectance for normal- and oblique-incidence AR coatings in the visible and infrared spectral ranges.
