Abstract
The absorption in Ion Beam Sputtered laser mirrors was examined. It is known that impurities influences the absorption of optical films. Therefore the impurity content of the sputtered films has been investigated using total reflection X-ray fluorescence analysis (TRFA). Impurity analysis revealed stainless steel components (iron, chromium, nickel) to be an important part of the impurities, but also material from the preceding sputter run was detected. The absorption measurement showed that besides the stainless steel components the cosputtered material leads to an enlarged absorption. These absorptions are causing mirrors deformations in a high power argon laser.
