1. Refermat, Stanley. 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 highly-reflecting mirrors.
