Reflection of KrF laser radiation from silicon surfaces with various coatings

We have measured the coefficients of reflection of KrF-laser radiation from a silicon surface, and also from its coating films SiO2, Al, PSG, and their combinations. We have shown that specular reflection from a silicon surface with various films can vary in intensity not only on account of the change of absorption in the material, but also as a result of scattering of the radiation by the surface waves that are rapidly produced after the silicon melting.
