Reflectance of dielectric mirrors.
Degree: MS, 2017, University of Rochester
The objectives of this thesis are to investigate
methods of accurately measuring the reflectance of dielectric
mirrors and to study the effect of small absorption and scattering
in the layers of dielectric mirrors, particularly the layers close
to the surface of the stack. </br>The reflectance
of dielectric mirrors is measured using the method of J. U. White.
Particular attention is given to the accurate measurement of the
reflectance and the elimination of the systematic errors in these
measurements. To study the effect of small absorption and
scattering in the dielectric mirrors, an absentee layer was
deposited on the mirrors. The reflectance of the overcoated
quarter-wave stacks was compared to the reflectance of the
dielectric mirrors. </br>The reflectance of
dielectric mirrors was measured to within 0.14%. No results
concerning the effect of small losses in dielectric layers were
obtained because the half-wave layer was deposited at the wrong
wavelength. Time limitations prevented further study of these
losses. </br>The White spectroreflectometer shows
promise as a means of determining the reflectance of
