Spin Coated Amorphous Chalcogenide Resists Spin Coated Amorphous Chalcogenide Glasses Book Review:

Amorphous films of several chalcogenides were spin-cast from solutions prepared by dissolving the starting material in organic solvents. As-deposited materials were identified as amine and amide salts. A mechanism was proposed for the dissolution of arsenic trisulfide in the organic solvent as maromolecular clusters. Thermal annealing to 200 C of arsenic trisulfide solution-cast material showed decomposition of the organic salt about 90 C followed by cross-linking of arsenic sulfide clusters above 130 C. Technologically utile, quality thin films were obtained with spin deposited arsenic trisulfides. Pattern replication using ultra-violet photodoping by silver was demonstrated and a scheme for high resolution lithography was proposed. 0.4 micrometer wide patterns over 1 micrometer topography were replicated without dimensional loss. Multilayer films of up to 4.5 micrometers were obtained for optical measurements by several consecutive spinning-baking sequence, without reduction in flatness. The mean value of the index of refraction and optical band gap were 2.227 + or - 0.055 and 2.273 + or - 0.024 eV respectively. Electronic structure of As4S4 and As4Se4 molecules were calculated and the resulting molecular band gaps were consistent with the measure value for the corresponding glasses. The calculated density-of-valence-states for the molecules were of very good agreement with valence band XPS measurement on the solids.

Chalcogenide Glasses Part 3 Chalcogenide Glass Forming Systems Book Review:

This report summarizes the literature search on glass-forming regions of chalcogenide compositional systems. Brief discussions on physical, chemical and structural properties are also included. This study was conducted to select and evaluate the chalcogenide glasses which are suitable for use in graded optical filter applications. Continuous variations of optical properties may be achieved by continuously varying the compositions of multicomponent glasses. The usefulness of this approach is severely limited in some multi-component glasses because of their tendency for phase separation and crystallization, which lead to inhomogeneous microstructures.

This book offers an up-to-date treatment of chalcogenide glasses and amorphous semiconductors from basic principles to applications while providing the reader with the necessary theoretical background to understanding the material properties. Chalcogenides form a special class of materials, which have one or more of the elements from the chalcogen group, Group VI in the Periodic Table (S, Se. or Te) as a constituent; the chalcogen is mixed with other elements to form various "new" compounds and alloys. Chalcogenides are noncrystalline solids because their structure is "amorphous" or "glassy". Such structures have totally different properties than crystalline solids. Chalcogenide glasses have a number of very interesting and useful properties, which have been already exploited in the commercialization of new devices.

Overall Aspects of Non Traditional Glasses Synthesis Properties and Applications Book Review:

The considerable proliferation of new glasses during the second half of the 20th century (germanate, vanadate, bismuthate, tellurite, chalchogenide glasses, etc.) brought about the use the plural form of the 4 generic glass denomination, in order to be able to index each emerging glass family by its proper name, as well as to classify them methodically. Together with its great compositional versatility, the peculiar characteristics of glass (non-crystalline structure with short-range order, continuous network with no intergranular boundaries, isotropy, easy to be formed into a plastic state inside a wide temperature range) allow for a freedom of design and adaptability that few materials are able to offer. All these circumstances have contributed to the fact that, in the last seventy years, glass has acquired the multiple and varied appearance of its new families, without losing neither its original image nor its soda-lime-silica traditional composition, destined for the huge industrial manufacture of its conventional products.
