Paper Abstract

Ion beam optical coatings based on titanium, tantalum and silicon oxides find wide application in visible and near IR lasers since they allow production of mirrors with a high coefficient of reflection as well as provide high laser damage thresholds. This paper reports on development of the coatings with low absorption and scattering and high coefficient of reflection (99.98%) at 632 nm for circular polarization and an angle of bean incidence of 45 degree(s) as well as on the protective antireflection coatings on BBO crystals and silicate glass at 1064 nm with high laser damage thresholds (15 . . .20 J/cm2). Absorption, scattering and loss in the mirrors as well as laser damage thresholds of the protective antireflection coatings have been measured.
