Abstract

We report on the correlation between the laser damage resistance, the optical and the physical properties of Sc2O3/SiO2 mixture coatings. Several sets of samples with ten different mixture ratios have been prepared by ion-beam sputtering. The atomic compositions of the mixture thin films are quantified employing x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy depth profiles. Laser-induced damage thresholds are determined with single subpicosecond pulses (500 fs) at 1030 nm. Furthermore, Son1 multishot measurements are realized in the ultraviolet wavelength range (355 nm) at pulse durations of 5 ns. In addition, the influence of two different substrate polishing qualities on the radiation resistance of the composite thin films is discussed.
