Paper Abstract

Today there is hardly any product in the optical industry without the implication of optical coatings. Mainly in the UV spectral region, laser-induced damage thresholds (LIDT) of these coatings are a limiting factor for the development of a cost-effective resonator, beam relay, and mask imaging optics. Based on state-of-the-art LIDT knowledge, high-reflective and antireflective coatings for high-power excimer lasers were investigated. Some rules for preparing interference coatings with very high UV-LIDT will be given.
