Abstract
A durable protected silver coating was designed and fabricated for possible use on flashlamp reflectors in the National Ignition Facility to avoid tarnishing under corrosive conditions and intense visible light . This coating provides a valuable alternative for mirror coatings where high reflectance and durability are important requirements. This paper describes a protected silver coating having high reflectance from 400 nm to 10,000 nm. The specular reflectance is between 95 percent and 98 percent in the visible region and 98 percent or better in the IR region.
