Development of empirical models for the prediction of refractive index of optical thin film materials in ion beam assisted evaporation processes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Empirical Models for the prediction of density and refractive index of optical thin film materials as a function of processing parameters during ion assisted evaporation have been developed for Ta2O5 (TiO2, SiO2 and MgF2 under way). These models have been implemented in a computer program for the simulation of evaporation processes in order to predict the spatial distribution of film thickness, film density and film refractive index on optical substrates. Good agreement between theory and experiment is achieved.
