Paper Abstract

Laser damage thresholds of fluoride HR coating were investigated at 352 nm, 10 ns pulses. Additionally, an effective method to reduce the crazing in fluoride HR coatings is studied. A high threshold greater than 30 J/cm2 was achieved in LaF3/AlF3 coating when the laser conditioning procedure was used. The IAD process or double stack design with a combination of fluoride and HfO2SiO2 coating was effective in reducing the crazing.
