Paper Abstract

The unavoidable absorption of thin films used in antireflective coatings forms a permanent bottleneck in the development of optics for high power laser applications. A valid alternative would be the micro-structuring of the optics surface, realizing a diffraction grating which emulates the functioning of an Anti-Reflection thin film layer. Due to the absence of film material, this diffractive structure would not contribute to the overall absorption of the optics. This paper investigates the practical limits of this strategy, applied to zinc selenide as low absorption infrared substrate material.
