Paper Abstract

Multilayer dielectric high-reflectance coatings were investigated for potential application in a high-average-power, 1-1.1m wavelength, free-electron laser oscillator. Of concern are the ultra- violet harmonics of the primary wavelength generated within the oscillator that tend to degrade the dielectric coatings. These coatings are required to be high reflecting and low absorbing with respect to the 1-µm wavelength and resist degradation/damage from the ultraviolet harmonics.
