Paper Abstract

The development of photon devices requires the materials with high optical response speed. A type of composite thin films composed of nano-scale Ag particles and barium oxide medium was fabricated. There were two methods in the formation of the thin films: single metallic layer method and triple metallic layer method. The thickness of the thin films in different formation methods was approximately 150 nm or 300 nm, while, Ag particles had an average diameter of 20 nm or 15 nm. A pump-probe method was used for measuring the transient change of optical transmissivity of thin films which were stimulated by ultrashort laser pulses of duration 150 fs and wavelength 647 nm. The Ag-BaO thin films presented that the transmissivity increased rapidly.
