Tungsten-tellurite glass thin films were fabricated by radio-frequency (rf) magnetron sputtering method at various processing parameters such as substrate temperatures, Ar/O2 processing gas flow ratio, processing pressure, and rf power from a 70TeO2-30WO3 target fabricated by solid–state sintering method. The effects of processing parameters on the growth rate, the surface morphologies, the crystallinity, and refractive indices of thin films were investigated using atomic force microscopy, X-ray diffractometer, scanning electron microscopy, and UV spectrometer. Amorphous glass thin films with a surface roughness of 4∼6 nm were obtained only at room temperature and crystalline phase were observed in all as-deposited thin films prepared at above the room temperature. The deposition rate strongly depends on the processing parameters. It increases as the rf power increases and the processing pressure decreases. Especially, it changes remarkably as varying the Ar/O2 gas flow ratio from 40sccm/0sccm to 0sccm/40sccm. When the films were formed in pure Ar atmosphere it shows a deposition rate of ∼0.2 μm /h, whereas ∼1.5 μm/h when the films was formed in pure O2 atmosphere.
