Paper Abstract

We have produced and characterized Mo/Y multilayers designed as linear-polarizers for use near λ ~ 8 nm. By depositing these films directly onto silicon photodiodes, we are able to measure both reflectance and transmittance in the EUV using synchrotron radiation. These measurements have been used to access the accuracy of yttrium optical constants in this wavelength range. We describe our experimental results and discuss the prospects for the future development of efficient EUV polarization elements.
