Abstract
We report on transparent and heat-reflecting Indium-Tin-Oxide (ITO) films prepared by well controlled reactive electron-beam evaporation of In203+ 9 mol. % SnO2 onto glass in - 5x 10-4 Torr of 02. Typical results for 0.3 pm thick films deposited on substrates at 300°C were: visible light absorptance < 2 %, thermal infrared reflectance > 90 %, and dc resistivity 3x 10-4 Qcm. Similar properties were found for substrate temperatures down to 150°C, whereas a rapid deterioration took place at still lower temperatures. After antireflection coating with -0.1 pm of evaporated MgF2, the visible transmittance became - 1% larger than that of the uncoated glass, while the infrared reflectance increased by a few percent only. The ITO+ MgF2 coatings show much weaker iridescence than the bare ITO films.
