    Abstract

    Atomic Force Microscopy is a powerful tool for exploring the surface morphology of dielectric thin film coatings. We have demonstrated the utility of this tool in monitoring processing defects, laser conditioning and aging, and laser damage in e-beam evaporation deposited AR and HR coatings with a resolution not previously available.
