Description/Abstract

Crystalline Bragg reflectors are of interest for high power, high temperature and integrated applications. We demonstrate the automated growth of such structures by shuttered multi-beam Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD). Geometries include 145 layer stacks exhibiting >99.5% reflection and π phase-shifted designs. A crystalline grating strength-apodized sample was grown by mixing plumes to obtain layers with custom refractive indices. Peak reflection wavelength was tuneable with incident position, samples withstood temperatures of ~750 °C and film and substrate have been shown to withstand incident pulsed laser fluences of up to ~33 Jcm-2.
