22 July 2016 Improved silver mirror coating for ground and space-based astronomy
Author Affiliations +
A durable, UV-enhanced, silver mirror coating has been developed by ZeCoat Corporation. The coating is highly reflective from 350-nm through the long IR, and durable in warm-humid environments on earth, as well as, high radiation environments in space. This paper presents polarized-angular reflectance data, as well as, average reflectance data before and after simulated space radiation exposure.
