    Abstract

    We investigated the laser damage thresholds and optical performances of fluorides multilayered reflectors, consisting of middle index fluoride and Na3AlF6 for high power KrF laser applications. It was found the damage thresholds of those reflectors are significantly improved by laser annealing. Those reflectors with annealing resisted against the fluence of 18 – 27 J/cm2 (This fluence varies on combinations of various fluorides) for 248 nm, 15 nsec, 10 Hz pulses.
