Paper Abstract

The gain region in a tunable dye laser cavity is typically quite small and, therefore, the beam emerging from this region has a small diameter. In order to make effective use of a wavelength selective element such as a Littrow mounted diffraction grating in such a cavity, a beam expander is required. The use of prisms in this beam expander requires a high angle of incidence at some interfaces. Anti-reflection coatings of TiO2 and Si02 were designed and fabricated on fused quartz (75°) and BK-7 glass (83.1°) substrates. Both coatings were designed to select p polarization in the dye cavity.
