Abstract

Due to their useful atomic structure, carbon nanotubes(CNTs)have fascinating chemical and physical properties, as exemplified by graphite and diamond. They have enabled major achievements in various fields, such as materials,electronicdevices,energystorage,separations,andsensors.Recently, antire-flective coatings(ARCs)withself-cleaningpropertieshavebeenstudiedbecauseoftheirinteresting characteristicsandwidevarietyofpracticalapplications.Inthisreview,the basic principles of antire-flection andself-cleaningarediscussed.Fabricationmethodsarealsodiscussed,withspecific attention giventosiliconandsilicasubstratesthatincorporateCNTs.Additionally,ARCsandself-cleaningcoatings on carbon nanotubes are briefly described. Finally, recent developments in antireflective and self- cleaning coating using CNTs and some multifunctional ARCs are introduced.
