Paper Abstract

Data are provided to demonstrate that metals, semiconductors, and insulators can be sputter deposited to obtain preselected properties. Semiconductors and insulators such as CdTe, CdS, In2-x SnxO3, TiO2 and a-Si have been controllably and reproducibly deposited to obtain a wide spectrum of electrical and optical properties. Electrical resistivity and optical absorption have been related to compositional and structural properties. Metals such as Cu and Ag have been deposited for the purpose of achieving damage-resistant high reflectivity surfaces for high energy laser applications. A sputter deposited, mechanically polishable, damage-resistant mirror material with high reflectivity was developed.
