Paper Abstract

Presented are the experimental measurements of the absorptance characteristics of multilayer dielectric mirrors designed for operation at glancing angles of incidence. The characteristics are measured as a function of incidence angle (up to 89.5°), for both s and p-polarization, using photoacoustic calorimetry. An absorptance of 0.007% (99.993% R) at 89.5° is measured for a multilayer all-dielectric mirror designed for 514.5 nm light. The results of multilayer dielectric on metal mirrors are also given. Preliminary comparisons with theory show fair agreement with the data, but finer scale differences still need to be better understood.
