Formation of novel optical materials by ion implantation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Ion implantation into glasses shows considerable promise as a technique for producing novel materials having unique optical properties. There is also significant commercial interest in the marketing of optical waveguides, high-performance polarizing glasses, and birefringent glasses. In this work, special glass compositions, including both two-phase and anisotropic materials, were prepared by bulk processing techniques and then implanted with Ag, Au, and Cu ions at different temperatures, energies, and doses. The composite materials produced showed strong resonant absorption at the surface plasmon resonance frequency. The plasmon frequency was consistent with the formation of spherical colloids of the implanted metals having diameters ... continued below

Description

Ion implantation into glasses shows considerable promise as a technique for producing novel materials having unique optical properties. There is also significant commercial interest in the marketing of optical waveguides, high-performance polarizing glasses, and birefringent glasses. In this work, special glass compositions, including both two-phase and anisotropic materials, were prepared by bulk processing techniques and then implanted with Ag, Au, and Cu ions at different temperatures, energies, and doses. The composite materials produced showed strong resonant absorption at the surface plasmon resonance frequency. The plasmon frequency was consistent with the formation of spherical colloids of the implanted metals having diameters on the order of 10 nm. No anisotropic behavior of the implanted materials was observed. Possible applications for these materials, had such anisotropy been developed, would have included optical isolators, Faraday rotators, optical waveguides, and switching devices for use in optical communication and computing.
