• Metallo–organic compound-based plasma enhanced CVD of ZrO2 films for microelectronic applications

ZrO2 films on silicon wafer were deposited by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition technique using zirconium tetratert butoxide (ZTB). The structure and composition of the deposited layers were studied by fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The deposition rates were also studied. MOS capacitors fabricated using deposited oxides were used to characterize the electrical properties of ZrO2 films. The films showed their suitability for microelectronic applications.

• Synthesis of Er3+ and Er3+ : Yb3+ doped sol–gel derived silica glass and studies on their optical properties

Er3+ and Er3+ : Yb3+ doped optical quality, crack and bubble free glasses for possible use in making laser material have been prepared successfully through sol–gel route. The thermal and optical, including UV-visible absorption, FTIR etc characterizations were undertaken on the samples. The absorption characteristics of Er3+ doped samples clearly revealed the absorption due to Er3+ ions. On the other hand Yb3+ : Er3+ doped samples showed enhanced absorption due to ${}^{2}F_{7/2} \rightarrow {}^{2}F_{5/2}$ transition. The absorption and emission crosssection for ${}^{2}F_{7/2} \leftrightarrow {}^{2}F_{5/2}$ of Yb3+ were estimated. FTIR absorption spectra have clearly shown the reduction of the absorption peak intensity with heat treatment in the range 3700–2900 cm-1. The 960 cm-1 band also showed progressive decrease in the absorption band peak intensity with heat treatment. The result of the investigations with essential discussions and conclusions have been reported in this paper.
