Evaluation of Refractive Index Variations of TiO₂:SiO₂:Zr Thin Films by Molar Ratio

Title variants
Languages of publication
Zr-doped and undoped TiO₂-SiO₂ thin films were fabricated by using sol-gel dip coating. TiO₂:SiO₂:Zr films with different molar ratio were coated on glass substrates. Refractive indexes and the thicknesses of thin films were measured with Metricon 2010 Prism Coupler. The theoretical and measured refractive indexes of thin films were found to be consistently changing with molar ratio. The measured refractive indexes of thin films were lower than the theoretical ones due to the porosity of the structure.
