Abstract

Large-aperture deposition of high-laser-damage-threshold, low-dispersion optical coatings for 15 femtosecond pulses have been developed using plasma-ion-assisted electron-beam evaporation. Coatings are demonstrated over 10 in. aperture substrates.

Figures (9)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

Theoretical width of an s-polarized reflector at 45° incidence is significantly broader for a niobia/silica coating than for a hafnia/silica coating. Use of the reflector in s-polarization at high incidence angles broadens the reflectance band, while use in p-polarization narrows the usable spectral bandwidth.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Precision planetary rotation system for high-speed rotation of substrates up to 310 mm in diameter. Substrate planets alternate with 100 mm planets, making through-planet optical monitoring possible. System geometry is configured for uniform deposition over the substrate aperture without the use of shadow masks.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Theoretical reflectance, group-delay dispersion, and standing-wave electric-field intensity within the coating structure for HR1–HR4. Note that HR1–HR3 are for s polarization, while HR4 is for p-polarized usage. Reflectance bandwidth is indicated for R>99.5%.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Measured thin-film uniformity over a 254 mm aperture based on system geometry. Thickness variations are slowly varying, with minimal phase errors since the film deposition is continuous with no shadow masks between the source and substrate.

Fig. 5.
Fig. 5.

Impact on the temporal pulse shape for a theoretical system containing 25 mirrors of HR1, HR2, HR3, and HR4. The second- and third-order phase error resulting from dispersion is removed, based on the assumption that such error can be compensated by stretcher/compressor tuning. The performance in (a) is based strictly on the dispersion of the mirrors, while (b) assesses the impact of 1% film thickness nonuniformity over the mirror aperture.

Fig. 6.
Fig. 6.

Laser-damage thresholds of HR1–HR4 as tested by Lidaris using a 59 fs pulse with a center wavelength of 800 nm. The performance of each coating is consistent with its relative electric-field intensity in the air-side high-index layer, indicating the damage is driven by the low electronic bandgap of the high-index material. Manipulation of the relative intensity of the electric field provides higher-damage thresholds in HR1 and HR2.

Fig. 7.
Fig. 7.

Laser-damage thresholds of silver-based mirrors as tested by Lidaris using a 59 fs pulse with a center wavelength of 800 nm. Damage thresholds for s-polarization remain consistently higher than those for p-polarization.

(a) Deposition process was demonstrated on a 310 mm diam substrate, with (b) the flatness of the coated substrate in 150MPa of thin-film stress. (c) Removal of the stress-induced surface deformation results in a remaining spatial phase error of a random speckle pattern below the resolution of the interferometer.
