Determination of Optical Transmission Loss in Poly (3-Methyl Thiophene) Thin Film Planar Waveguide: Effect of Vapour Chopping
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 18, 197-207, 2011
Abstract
This aricle reports the effect of vapour chopping technique on the properties of vacuum evaporated poly (3-methyl thiophene) thin films such as surface morphology, optical transmittance, band gap, refractive index and optical transmission loss. Vapour chopping gives smooth surface morphology with smaller grain size reduced roughness than non chopped thin films, while the transmittance of the thin film increases with simultaneous decrease in the refractive index, band gap and optical transmission loss decreases due to vapour chopping.
