Photodarkening Profiles And Kinetics In Chalcogenide Glasses, Stephen Ducharme, J. Hautala, P.C. Taylor Jun 1990

Photodarkening Profiles And Kinetics In Chalcogenide Glasses, Stephen Ducharme, J. Hautala, P.C. Taylor

Stephen Ducharme Publications

The spatial and temporal evolution of photodarkening in chalcogenide glasses is simulated by a simple kinetic model and tested against experiments. In the model, photodarkening, a gradual decrease of the energy of the absorption edge caused by above-band-gap illumination, is the additional absorption at defects created by the absorbed light. The defect-creation rate is proportional to the rate at which photons are absorbed either directly at the defect site or, alternatively, at a neighboring site. The depletion of the incident light within the sample is included and the resulting equations cast into a universal form that is applicable to realistic ...
