8 May 2018 Characterization of glancing angle deposited (GLAD) optical coatings for UV applications
Author Affiliations +
Controlling for uniformity of an optical coating becomes increasingly difficult for optics with steep curvatures over a large aperture. The growth of a film will inevitably be affected as a function of deposition angle. By exploiting the porosity of a film grown at oblique angles, its refractive index can be tailored to specific applications. An anti-reflective coating deposited on a tilted Corning High-Purity Fused Silica (HPFS) 7980 substrate was characterized for surface and cross-sectional morphologies, crystalline structures, and spectroscopic homogeneity.
