Paper Abstract

Optical properties of ultrathin aluminum quantum wells deposited on glass (SiO2) and crystalline silicon (a-Si) are studied at room temperature in the infrared region at 9.201 micrometers wavelength within two thicknesses range: d approximately 5 to 35 angstroms and 36 to 112 angstroms. All our thickness dependence reflectivity measurements were made by tuning a CO2 laser to 9.201 micrometers for p-polarization and an angle of incidence of 7 degree(s). Our main contribution here is the reveled fine oscillatory behavior on a gradually increasing reflectivity spectra. These fine oscillation structure can be attributed to quantum size effects.
