14 July 1986 Thin Film Coatings For High Energy Laser Optical Systems
Author Affiliations +
The optical coating requirements for high energy laser systems have advanced the state-of-the-art in coating design and manufacturing technology over the past decade. This paper is intended to provide guidance with respect to the spectral properties that can be achieved in practice with current manufacturing technology. The key to specifying functional and cost effective coatings is separating what is possible from what is practical. Realistic specifications are presented for several generic types of coatings relevant to high energy laser optical systems in the spectral region from 230nm to 2000nm.
