Paper Abstract

Characterization of high reflectivity multilayers coatings at 1.064 micrometers are reported. Measurements of reflectivity were performed by a Fabry-Perot cavity decay time method and a 10-6 precision was obtained. Measurements of absorption was done in the 10-6 range by collinear mirage detection with a 10-8 precision. Diffusion was investigated with a commercial scatterometer and total integrated scattering in the sub-ppm range on home made Rmax 0 degree(s) mirrors was measured.
