Paper Abstract

Metal coatings have been produced using a Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) process based on a dynamic prism system. A nanosecond pulsed Nd:YVO4 laser emitting at a wavelength of 1064 nm is steared through a couple of prisms into a metallic target placed inside a vacuum chamber. This work presents the study of the parameters applied to achieve ablation of two metallic targets, aluminum and brass, in order to obtain their respective metallic coatings on glass substrates by pulsed laser deposition. The results obtained allow to standardize the optimal laser and set-up parameters in order to obtain homogeneous layers, tunable thickness and/or semi-transparent mirror behaviour through the formation of an adequate plasma plume. Microstructure and transmittance spectra of these coatings are also reported.
