Abstract
Canon Inc. released the new EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM lens with a subwavelength structure coating (SWC), a new type of high performance anti-reflective coating, in December 2008. The subwavelength structure, which is made from microcrystalline alumina, can be formed on large, curved surfaces using a simple sol-gel process. Furthermore, by inserting a thin-film layer with an intermediate refractive index between the lens and the microcrystalline alumina, it is possible to achieve superior anti-reflection performance matching various lens refractive indexes. This report presents the principles and performance of SWC and describes the application of SWC to imaging lenses.
