Paper Abstract

In this paper a systematic investigation on the optical behaviour of 40-100 keV Ar implant ed alkali glasses will be discussed. The implantation of soda-lime glasses resulted in a surface layer formation which presents a decreased refractive index. The thickness and average refractive index of such layer have been evaluated from the position and height of the interferential minima, observed in the reflectance curves. The significative antireflective improvement of the implanted glass has been connected to a surface alkali depletion, due to a preferential sputtering and an enhanced diffusion over the implanted ion range.
