3 March 2000 Thermographic profiles on optical surfaces: from insulators to metals
Author Affiliations +
IR thermal imagin has been sued to study absorption in coated optical surface.s THis technique has demonstrated the ability to rapidly determine coating quality on thermally insulating substrates such as fused silica. The application of this technique to coatings deposited on thermal conductive substrates such as sapphire, silicon or copper is discussed. Data and the result of modeling are compared to show the limitations and potential of this technique for measurement and study of different classes of optical components.
