Paper Abstract

The technology for the fabrication of semiconductor-doped glass film by co-sputtering of Coming 7059 and a CdS powder or pellet is described. The presence of semiconductor microcrystallites was verified by using Raman spectroscopy. XPS measurements show that CdS content of the films varies from 3 to 20% by weight depending on the kind of target used and the RF power supplied to the sputtering system. Nonlinear coefficient n2 of the films is about 10-10 m2/W. The nonlinearity is probably of thermal origin. All-optical beam deflection experiment based on nonlinear properties of the deposited films is described.
