The proposed technology is aimed for stray light suppression in spaceflight instruments. The non-reflective nano-pyramid shaped carbon nanotube coating is designed for application on components such as baffles, entrance aperture, tubes and stops. Black-body masks and terrestrial telescopes could also benefit from the proposed technology.
The proposed innovation comes at a much lower cost than the current state of the art, and is readily scalable. Commercial applications include optical apertures, binoculars, night vison goggles, analytical instrumentation and other devices that benefit from stray light suppression.
