Vanadium dioxide (V02) film exhibits semiconductor-to-metal transition at temperature, Tt near 340 K. The transition is accompanied by changes in optical transmission and relection. In this paper the reflected light spectra were experimentally determined at the two temperatures below and above Tt (300 and 360 K) using film thickness as the parameter. Then we calculated the ratio, Kλ , of reflection coefficient, Rm, in metallic phase to reflection coefficient, Rsc, in semiconductor phase. The film for which the maximum Kλ was observed at λ =1.06μm applied as a mirror in Nd:glass laser. The laser generated giant pulse with duration time at about 50 ns.
