Abstract:

The objective of this research program was to develop a thorough understanding of the science and technology of films applied as coatings on materials transparent to 10.6 and 3-5 micron radiation. The approach included preparation of films by sputtering, evaporation and CVD techniques. Topics discussed include the following Selection of materials Preparation of substrate surface First-layer films of germanium on potassium chloride substrates First-layer films of cadmium telluride on potassium chloride Tetrahedral carbon films Plasma-polymerized films Durability testing of thin films Determination of stress-optic coefficient of ZnSe at 10.6 micrometers.
