Just as interesting, I wonder if it could be applied to lens coatings to reduce flare and reflections.

Since it consists of creating an etched or "cratered" surface, I would think that it would have broader application used as a coating on the interior of lens barrels, enlarger lens boards, negative stages, and even negative carriers to decrease the possibility of flare. I personally don't see it used as a means to achieve a deeper black on paper or on the optical surfaces of lenses for the reasons that etching or "cratering" the surface would probably be detrimental to the image.

I wonder if it reflects radar and laser? I should paint the front and back of my car with this stuff. It might reduce my speeding ticket count!

I would not be surprised to see it appear on the inside of some of the flagship camera bodies that will come out in a few years. Simply because it is yet another new feature to sell....

Ten bucks says they call it Superflocking or Ultraflock or something like that.

Funny - I can remember something similar being invented/discovered about 15 years ago...
At that time, it was an etched platinum alloy which was a lot blacker than all previous blacks.

Have we seen many lenses or bodies with this coating inside?

Jorge,
I have an idea for you. Take those down to your local welding supply store...they will pay you for those!!!!...very effective at shielding ones eyes from the arc of that blinding light.

And think of it, if you will, of the tremendous sense of contributation to the wellbeing of your fellow man that you will experience. You will become known as Saint Jorge, patron saint of the blind.

And to think that we all knew you "when".!!!!

I have some negatives like that too. Save them, they make good filters for looking at solar eclipses. The blacker, the better. But, they have to be black and white film, color film will not work.

Well, the way things are now, I would get sued the first time someone welded their finger because they could not see the light...they are that dark you know...

Jorge, Well in that case...maybe not. You have the good fortune to understand all of the aspects of "Murphys Law". I just keep getting into trouble and working doubly hard to get back out again...Kinda like digging a ditch in sand.
