In this study, we designed a two-layer hybrid Anti-Reflection/Anti-Static (AR/AS) thin film. Two kinds of UV-curable fluorinated compounds were synthesized as low refractive index materials, and a TiO2 sol combined with a conducting polymer, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) was made by the sol-gel process for use as a high refractive index material as well as a conducting layer. In order to determine the most optimized AR/AS system, the spectral properties were simulated with the refractive index of each layer. According to the simulated results, a high refractive index layer was deposited on the hard coated polyethylene terephthalate) (PET) substrate by the spin coating technique, and a low refractive index layer was spin coated on the low refractive index layer. The reflectance and transmittance were measured by UV-VIS-NIR spectroscopy. It was found that the measured reflectance and the maximum transmittance of the AR/AS film were 0.71 %R at a wavelength of 550 nm and 93 %Tin the wavelength range between 400 and 700 nm, respectively. The surface resistance of the AR/AS film was 108.6 ohms.
