Abstract

Optical coatings with enhanced roughness offer promising prospects for ultrahydrophobic transparent surfaces with controlled scatter losses. Our approach links roughness characteristics with both wetting behavior and scattering. Experiments with rough oxide layers yielded surfaces with a high water contact angle.
