Abstract:

An amorphous film of a photoresponsive semi-conducting material such as germanium-telluride deposited upon a thick silicon dioxide layer formed on a silicon chip substrate. The silicon chip underlying the central region of the amorphous film is etched through to the silicon dioxide layer to define a trough thermally isolating the central region of the silicon dioxide layer.
