CMS has developed a new “Semiconductor Supermirror” technology, which addresses the technical limitations of excess thermal noise in sputtered optical coatings. Due to the unique properties of our semiconductor coating material, our Semiconductor Supermirrors provide a 10×-100× reduction in mechanical dissipation, and thus corresponding reductions in Brownian noise, when compared with typical ion-beam sputtered films. Furthermore, this unique mirror technology exhibits additional advantages such as very low optical losses in the mid-infrared and high thermal conductivity, more than 30× greater than competing dielectric mirror technologies.
