Abstract

The process of damage accumulation in thin ruthenium films exposed to multiple femtosecond extreme ultraviolet (XUV) free-electron laser (FEL) pulses below the critical angle of reflectance at the FEL facility in Hamburg (FLASH) was experimentally analyzed. The multi-shot damage threshold is found to be lower than the single-shot damage threshold. Detailed analysis of the damage morphology and its dependence on irradiation conditions justifies the assumption that cavitation induced by the FEL pulse is the prime mechanism responsible for multi-shot damage in optical coatings.
