Results of thermal switching of the electrical and optical properties of thin films of Ag2S are presented. The procedures for the preparation of the thin film are described. Film characteristics including crystal structure, composition for various thicknesses, and spectral transmittance/reflectance versus electrical conductivity are given. In addition, we have demonstrated electrical control (not due to Joule heating) of the spectral transmittance over the Far-IR to millimeter wavelength region. The application of the latter effect to infrared-millimeter devices such as modulators, variable attenuators, switchable polarizers, and tunable filters is stressed.
