The optical properties of MgF2 films prepared by evaporation and ion-assisted deposition have been determined from transmittance and near-normal incidence reflectance measurements and also from electronenergy loss spectroscopy (EELS). The results show that oxygen-ion assistance leads to higher extinction coefficientsfor wavelengths
