Paper Abstract

The main requirement of stable work of tunable lasers is the constancy of reflection coefficient for laser mirrors in the necessary spectral range. In order to synthesize and make mirrors for IR-range we elaborated multilayer film structures of two kinds. In the first case received mirrors with the special quarter-wave films - substrate design have being used for the tunable CO2-laser in the range 9÷11 μm. In ot her case we designed and investigated mirror's multilayer structures similar to unsymmetrical Fabry-Perot interferometer's one. The really fabricated interferometer based on such mirrors had the dissolution 13±1 cm-1 in the range 800÷1300 cm-1.
