Abstract
Primary reflector of the optical antenna is a key component in the space laser communication systems, and multi-wavelengths laser need to be worked in the common aperture. Reflection coating is designed for the primary reflector of a laser communication system, which can work at three wavelengths (633nm, 808nm, 1550nm), the designed target reflectance are R633nm≥50%, R808nm≥99% and R1550nm≥99% at angle of incidence from 0 to 20 deg. We selected Ta2O5 and SiO2 as the high refractive index and low refractive index coating materials, analyzed the impact on the reflection coating of the systemic errors and random errors, and determined the manufacture error of the coater system which can't greater than 1%. The Ion beam sputtering deposition technique was used to manufacture reflection coating for three-wavelengths and a LAMBDA900 spectrophotometer was used to analysis the reflectance at three wavelengths which achieved the design requirements. Finally we give the origin of manufacture error source for this high reflection coating. The reflection coating component was successfully used in the primary reflector of the optical antenna of the laser communication systems.
