Subject: need help on aluminizing mirrors

Hi all,

I need some help/suggestions on making aluminum mirrors by vacuum coating.

My problem is: the adhesion is not good enough, the aluminum layer does not survive the tape peeling test. My running conditions are:
--Pressure: around 10^-5
--temperature: around 30C
--Al thickness: 500A

I do have oil backstreaming to the chamber from the diffusion pump since we do not have a cold trap there.

So, does any of my friends have any ideas of what the adhesion problem is?

Any input/suggestions/responses are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
