In a systematic and straightforward way general conditions are derived for establishing broadband antireflective coatings for the near infrared (700–1700 nm). Such coatings can be suitably applied to optical components of fiber-optical communication systems. The evaluated procedure indicates how, where, and by what means the broadest and lowest reflectance conditions are to be found.
