High visible transmittance values are interesting for windows in general and for the bleached state of smart windows in particular. For smart windows it is always possible to darken them and therefore the transparency of the bleached state can never become too high. One way of achieving a higher transmittance could be the use of antireflective coatings on the surfaces of the smart window. In this project the use of dip coating for putting antireflective coatings on window surfaces has been studied. The effect on transmittance and surface light scattering has been investigated and the results show that antireflective coatings on windows can have a positive impact on both.
