Abstract

The high density optical and/or thermal, electrical memories based on recording into chalcogenide thin films are currently used in industrial dimension but search for new materials continues due to request of higher recording density and shorter lasers wavelength available. The thin films of amorphous chalcogenides e.g. of Ag-As-S(Se) systems making or ternary use different techniques i.e. optically-induced silver dissolution in the binary As-S or As-S-Se chalcogenides prepared by thermal evaporation or by spin coating techniques were prepared and studied. Ternary Ag-As-S and quarternary Ag-As-S(Se) chalcogenide films were also deposited by direct-pulsed laser deposition. Films with euthectic or stoichiometric compositions were prepared. Optically-induced phase-changes in films, process kinetics and analysis of the structural changes and their potential application are described.
