The damage tracks of high energy ions in dielectric materials can be etched until overlapping conical etch pits are obtained. If the depth of the pits is >λ/2, an effective graded-index layer with very low reflectivity is obtained. Broadband antireflection treatment achieving reflectivities of <10−4 has been applied to plastics like Lexan and Mylar.
