15 January 1976 10.6 μm Mirror Reflectivities
Author Affiliations +
The Air Force Weapons Lab (AFWL) has a multiple-bounce reflectometer(1-3) which can measure 10.6 pm re-flectivities. This article will describe the capabilities of the reflectometer, discuss results of recent measurements and summarize what reflectivity one can expect for various mirror surfaces. Some of the mirrors have been used in operational systems. Many of the mirrors were polished and/or coated by the Developmental Optical Facility (DOF) at AFWL.
