Effects of Mirror Coating on Pulse Characteristics

With the advent of new technologies in the area of ultrafast optics, it has become an ever more important task to deliver ultrashort pulses to their target. It is common, to use mirrors with  metallic or dielectric layer-based coatings for that purpose. Therefore, an investigation of occurring effects on the characteristics of the propagated pulse which are introduced by the chosen type of mirror, are of particular interest. In this use case, we illustrate this effect by comparing the pulse propagation in systems with silver mirrors and  high-reflection (HR) dielectric coated mirrors as examples.
