Experimental studies on increasing the transmittance of a light–receiving element (LRE) by applying an antireflection coating were carried out. As an antireflection coating on the solar furnace, the fluoride composite material MgF2–CaF2 was synthesized. Transmission spectra of the LRE without the antireflection coating and with the antireflection coating were measured. The effect of translucence (increase of transmittance) of the LRE after applying the antireflection coating is observed in the spectral region of 0.4–1.1 μm.
