Title: Silver photo-diffusion and photo-induced macroscopic surface deformation of Ge{sub 33}S{sub 67}/Ag/Si substrate

Abstract

Ge-chalcogenide films show various photo-induced changes, and silver photo-diffusion is one of them which attracts lots of interest. In this paper, we report how silver and Ge-chalcogenide layers in Ge{sub 33}S{sub 67}/Ag/Si substrate stacks change under light exposure in the depth by measuring time-resolved neutron reflectivity. It was found from the measurement that Ag ions diffuse all over the matrix Ge{sub 33}S{sub 67} layer once Ag dissolves into the layer. We also found that the surface was macroscopically deformed by the extended light exposure. Its structural origin was investigated by a scanning electron microscopy.
