Paper Abstract

Vanadium pentoxide V2O5 thin films were grown on glass substrates by the LAMBD deposition system with different laser energies. The structure, composition and optical properties of the films have been investigated with atomic force microscopy, x-ray photoemission spectroscopy, ellipsometry and the transmittance analysis. Upon the increase of laser energy, the results showed that the changes in the optical constants are consistent with the thickness changes of the film. The refractive index increases and the absorption coefficient increases when the laser energy increases. The AFM analysis showed a change of the roughness and structure of the deposited films at different laser energies. The prepared films deposited by LAMBD showed interesting properties with correct V2O5 phase without need of annealing after deposition.
