Abstract

Bulk glasses of Se75 In25-x Pbx (when n = 0, 4, 6, 10) systems and thin films have been prepared by the conventional melt quenching technique and by thermal evaporation technique, respectively. The optical constants (absorption coefficient (α), refractive index (n), extinction coefficient (k)) have been studied for Se-In-Pb thin films as a function of photon energy in the wavelength range (300-900 nm). Spectral dependence of transmittance (T) and reflectance (R) in the spectral range (300-900 nm) of glass Se-In-Pb have also been observed at various concentrations of Te and Pb. The effect of compositional variation on some optical constant has been observed and discussed in the present investigation.

Key words: optical constants, thin films, chalcogenide glasses.
