In this Letter, we present a new type of ultrathin antireflection transparent and high-conductive screen based on plasmonic nanostructures that does not suffer from high loss and thickness coating and also can be used as good conductive material due to super electrical conductivity of the component (noble metal). Low reflection and greatly enhanced transmissions over a broad spectral range are observed at optical telecommunication frequencies in arbitrary polarizations. The performance is almost insensitive of the angle of incidence.
