Abstract: Monodisperse hollow silica nanospheres (HSNSs) were prepared via a template-assistant wet chemical method; their applications as self-cleaning antireflection (AR) coatings was discussed. The AR effect was originated from the hollow nature of HSNSs and the self-cleaning function was achieved by surface hydrophobization. Experimental results indicated good stability of the as-prepared coatings, which enables their potentials in window glazing applications.
