Recently we performed a numerical investigation of antireflection coatings that reduce significantly the reflection over a wide range of wavelengths and angles of incidence, and we proposed some experiments to demonstrate their feasibility. We provide a theoretical description of omnidirectional antireflection coatings that are effective over a wide range of wavelengths.
