A comparison of ion assisted deposition (IAD) and non-IAD e-beam coatings on BBO crystals was performed. Samples of BBO were processed as a lot and prepared for coatings using standard solvent cleaning. Two types of coatings were tested; a dual peak anti-reflection, 1064nm and 532nm, and a triple peak anti-reflection, 1064nm, 532nm and 355nm. After depositing of these high laser damage resistant coatings the transmission, reflection and absorption of each coating was measured. Each of the coatings laser damage threshold was determined and an analysis of the two methods of deposition was performed. Additionally, after MIL spec humidity tests were performed on each of the samples, spectral shifts were analyzed for both types of coatings. Conclusions were drawn about the preferred method of deposition for the improvement for spectral characteristics, increased laser damage resistance and reduction of humidity induced spectral shifts.
