Abstract

AsxTe100x amorphous thin films were fabricated by a pulsed laser deposition technique with the aim of finding photostable layers in as-deposited but preferably in relaxed (annealed) state. Photostability was studied in terms of the films’ stability of refractive index and bandgap under near-bandgap light irradiation. As40Te60 and As50Te50 layers were found to be photostable in both as-deposited as well as relaxed states. Moreover, As50Te50 layers present the lowest surface roughness. These characteristics make pulsed-laser-deposited As50Te50 thin films promising for applications in nonlinear optics.
