Paper Abstract

Unusual behavior has been reported for D20/H20-dosed CaF2 optical thin films. This behavior includes resistance to laser-induced damage at 2.7-µm radiation, improved damage morphology, and reduced optical absorption in the water band for even 1-120-dosed CaF2 optical thin films. Analysis of the films strongly suggests that the modification of film properties is not the result of inclusion of the D20/1420 into the film matrix or chemical contamination. Rather, the act of dosing has modified the structural properties of the films, thus producing the effects observed.
