Abstract

LaF 3 thin films of different thicknesses were deposited on CaF 2 (111) and silicon substrates at a relatively low substrate temperature of 150 ° C . Optical (transmittance, reflectance, refractive index, and extinction coefficient) and mechanical (morphology and crystalline structure) properties have been investigated and are discussed. It is shown that LaF 3 thin films deposited on CaF 2 (111) substrates are monocrystalline and have a bulklike dense structure. Furthermore, it is presented that low-loss LaF 3 thin films can be deposited not only by boat evaporation but also by electron beam evaporation.
