Paper Abstract

Liquid phase deposition of sol-gel method derived hybrid glass materials is utilized for fabrication of UV light deformable thin films. The hybrid glass material undergoes a surface-relief deformation when exposed to UV light. The observed deformation phenomenon is in the form of a physical expansion of the exposed areas. The maximum deformation when the material was patterned as a sinusoidal grating was 643 nm. The hybrid glass material features an index of refraction of 1.52, rms surface roughness of 2.25 +/- 0.83 nm after processing, and extinction coefficients of 1.2 10-3 micrometers -1 and 0.47 10-3 micrometers -1 at wavelengths of 633 nm and 1550 nm, respectively.
