Ultra-Antireflective Electrodeposited Plasmonic and PEDOT Nanocone Array Surfaces

Abstract : Novel broadband ultra-antireflective surfaces were created via the electrodeposition of a nanostructured zinc oxide thin film onto conductive, light absorbing periodic nanocone arrays. Nanocone arrays of (i) fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) coated with a 50 nm plasmonic gold thin film and (ii) the electroactive polymer poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) exhibited a very low broadband reflectivity of less than 0.1% from 475 to 800 nm at a wide range of incident angles after the electrodeposition of a nanostructured ZnO thin film onto the surface. SEM images reveal the formation of ZnO nanoflowers and nanorods on both nanocone array surfaces; these additional ZnO nanostructures enhance the coupling of the incident visible light into the absorptive gold or PEDOT nanocones to significantly reduce the reflectivity of these surfaces. The ZnO-coated nanocone array surfaces also exhibited an enhanced photoreactivity for the oxidative degradation of methylene blue, suggesting their potential to be used as a self-cleaning antireflective surface.
