Paper Abstract

Mo/Si multilayer mirrors with a high reflectance at normal incidence in the 232 - 236 angstrom spectral region have been deposited by rf magnetron sputtering for use in a XUV Ge-laser. The mirrors had a peak reflectance of 26% in this wavelength region. Characterization by TEM and XRD indicates good thickness control in the deposition process and low interface roughness, although interdiffusion is present at the interfaces. Preliminary experiments indicate that the XUV laser output intensity was increased when a multilayer mirror was added to allow a double pass through the gain medium.
