Access from EThOS:
TiO₂ films are widely used as high refractive index dielectric layers in multi-layer optical devices and functional films. Indeed, the refractive index of titania is amongst the highest of the commonly used optical coating materials. Typical applications include low emissivity and solar control films, anti-reflection coatings and narrow bandpass filters. There are, though, two critical issues which affect the use of titania films in commercial products. First, it has a low deposition rate in comparison with other hi high index materials, such as Nb205. And, secondly, the optical properties of titania films, and their stability, are critically dependent on the film structure, which in turn, is dependent on the deposition conditions used.
