Paper Abstract

Reflectance, angle-resolved scattering and total integrated scattering (TIS) measurements of surface roughness are reported for a number of Al/MgF2 coated mirrors. Reflectances are given for the 160 - 250 nm wavelength region and scattering is measured at 160 nm and 633 nm. Both replicated aspherical mirrors and flat, unreplicated samples were investiga-ted. Replicated mirrors with an interdiffusion barrier layer retain their high reflectance properties in the far UV although heated to 100 0C for 2 hours. Absorption dominate intensity losses for most of the mirrors, but scattering observed for two of the samples severely degrade the far UV specular reflectance. Angle-resolved scattering measurements at different wavelengths are demonstrated to be a useful technique for tracing scattering mechanisms. Light scattering in the visible is shown not to be representative of the scattering observed in the far UV, as strong particulate scattering at 633 nm vanishes at 160 nm. The possibility of using angle-resolved scattering for roughness determination of curved surfaces is briefly discussed.
