Paper Abstract

In this presentation, the concepts of bulk glass formation are discussed in light of their possible application to the production of glassy thin films for optical applications. Specifically, the systems Zr02-Si02 and Zr02-Mg0 were explored using electron beam coevap-oration for the film production. The films so produced were characterized using x-ray dif-fraction and scanning electron microscopy. It was found that while coevaporation of a traditional bulk glass former (Si02) to Zr02 was more effective in producing an amorphous mixture coating, other dopants (Mg0) could also achieve the same end if used in higher con-centrations. Key words: Ceramic coatings; Glassy; MgO; Si02; Thin films; and Zr02.
