Abstract
Graded refractive index Silicon Oxy-nitride thin films were deposited by RF magnetron reactive sputtering at different N2/O2 flow ratio. The effects of gas flow ratio on the refractive index, extinction coefficient and composition were studied using UV-VIS spectrophotometer, XPS and FTIR characterization methods. A simple and accurate method is presented for determination of the optical constants and physical thickness of thin films. Which was consisted in fitting the experimental transmission curve with the help of the physical model. The relationship between composition and optical gap and dispersion energy was analyzed using Wemple DiDomenico single-oscillator model. As a result, the samples’ refractive index can be controlled from 1.92 to 1.46 by adjusting the gas flow ratio, and the optical gap lies between 5eV~6.5eV.
