  • The effects of UV irradiation on the properties of xAl{sub 2}O{sub 3} {center_dot} (100 {minus} x)SiO{sub 2} gel films, which were obtained from aluminum butoxide chemically modified with benzoylacetone and partly hydrolyzed silicon ethoxide, have been studied. These gel films showed an optical absorption band at around 325 nm characteristic of the {pi}-{pi}* transition in chelate rings of {beta}-diketonate ligands. The irradiation of the gel films with UV light of 365 nm dissociated the chelate ring and simultaneously decreased the solubility of the gel films in ethanol containing HNO{sub 3}. This finding was successfully applied to the fine patterning ofmore » xAl{sub 2}O{sub 3} {center_dot} (100 {minus} x)SiO{sub 2} gel films with x = 30 or above. The gel films were leached in ethanol containing HNO{sub 3}, after UV irradiation through a mask, and heat-treated at 400 C for 20 min to give patterned amorphous Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-SiO{sub 2} films.« less
  • New polyamide acids (prepolymers of polybenzoxazinimides) containing 2,2-biquinolyl units in their main chain are synthesized. It is shown that these polymers form stable complexes with acids derived from the transition and rare-earth metals. The results of photophysical studies support the assumption that the process of generation of free charge carriers via a state of a pair bound by a Coulomb interaction includes two stages and that metal-polymer complexes are involved in this process. The quantum yield of photogeneration amounts to 0.007-0.05.
  • Many articles have studied the physical properties for photosensitive polycrystalline films (PF) of PbS, yet, until recently, is has been difficult to reconcile the various, often directly contrary points of view about the physical processes which determine the properties of these films. In this article, the authors systematically measure the activation energies of the Hall concentration of holes, the specific photoconductivity, and the time constant of its decay, using a large number of specimens. Various types of PF of PbS were obtained both by chemical deposition and by thermal vacuum deposition.
  • The complex W(CO){sub 4}(4-Me-phen) (4-Me-phen = 4-methyl-1,10-phenanthroline) has been determined to be luminescent and act as a spectroscopic probe in UV-curable trimethylolpropane triacrylate/poly(methyl methacrylate) thin films. Electronic absorption and luminescence characteristics have been measured for this complex in room-temperature solutions and low-temperature (80 K) glasses and in 10 mil thin films of the unexposed and exposed acrylate resins. In each environment dual luminescence bands were observed which are attributed to triplet-centered metal-to-ligand charge-transfer ({sup 3}MLCT) excited states. For the unexposed photoresist these transitions were recorded at 520 and 750 nm and in the exposed material these are moved to 525more » and 715 nm, respectively. The lowest energy emission band undergoes a substantial blue-shift and intensified greatly on polymerization; this phenomenon provides a useful molecular probe of the acrylate cross-linking process. These changes in emission characteristics are associated with a rigidochromic effect imparted on the lowest lying and solvent sensitive b{sub 2} {yields} b{sub 2}({pi}*) {sup 3}MLCT electronically excited state in this complex. The complex W(CO){sub 5}(4-CN-py) (4-CN-py = 4-cyanopyridine) was also investigated as a spectroscopic probe in the acrylate system but appears unsuitable for this purpose as it was found to degrade significantly in the resin. 20 refs., 6 figs.« less
