Abstract : Three types of thin films for high reflectivity mirror applications have been deposited and characterized. High and low refractive index oxide films deposited by ion beam sputtering have low optical absorption and sound mechanical properties. Refractory metal films produced by laser photodissociation display good reflectivity. Chemical vapor deposition of ZnSe layers has been used to explore the crystalline structures possible with different substrates and growth parameters. (Author)
