Paper Abstract

We present experimental results obtained by deposition of single layer and double-layer system made by means of electron-beam vacuum evaporation technique. We oriented our effort to short-wavelength 635-633 nm laser diodes emitting close to the wavelength of traditional He-Ne lasers with an intention to use them in extended-cavity laser design for metrological purposes. The resulting reflectivities were evaluated by measuring a testing plate of GaAs and by measuring a 'modulation depth' of a coated diode emission spectra. Our best results were reflectivities well below 10-4 and the repeatability of the deposition process in a range not exceeding 2 by 10-4.
