Quantizing nanolaminates as versatile materials for optical interference coatings

Applied Optics
Type: Zeitschriftenaufsatz (reviewed)
In this paper, the theoretical foundation of quantizing nanolaminates is explained, and the dependence of the optical band gap on quantum-well thickness is demonstrated. The production is investigated by applying molecular dynamics growth simulation and by correlating the results with layers deposited by ion beam sputtering and atomic layer deposition. The properties of manufactured nanolaminates are then compared to the theoretical behavior, and good agreement is found.
