Abstract:

This report documents results of characterization and testing of substrate and coating materials to be employed in the main thrust of the contractual effort, optimization of coatings for 2-6 micrometers laser optics. Principal results comprise x-ray diffraction analyses of the coating materials, documentation of substrate surface finish, total absorptance of CaF2 and SrF2 substrates at 3.8 and 5.3 micrometers, and results of a study of substrate surface chemistry as affected by cleaning procedures.
