The ESA mission Solar Orbiter (SOLO) is dedicated to the study of Solar Atmosphere and Heliosphere. As a part of the payload, the instrument METIS (Multi Element Telescope for Imaging and Spectroscopy) will provide images of the corona, both in the visible range and at the hydrogen Lyman-α emission line (121.6 nm). The realization of optical coatings, based on Al and MgF2, able to reflect/transmit such spectral component is therefore necessary. Since optical characteristics of materials in the VUV range are not well studied and greatly varying with realization process, we implemented a study of their properties in different deposition conditions. This is aimed to the realization of a custom designed filter, able to transmit the 121.6 nm while reflecting the visible light, and thus separate visible from UV light paths in the METIS instrument.
