Effect of Cleaning on the Optical Absorption of Calcium Fluoride and Fused Silica at 351 nm


Optical absorption values of uncoated calcium fluoride and fused silica substrates were measured at 351 nm using the 3-slope laser calorimetry technique. In addition, various substrate cleaning techniques were tried in order to lower the absorption, and to assess the contribution of surface contaminants to the total absorption.
