In this presentation, the concepts of bulk glass formation are discussed in light of their possible application to the production of glassy thin films for optical applications. Specifically, the systems Zr02-Si02 and Zr02-Mg0 were explored using electron beam coevap-oration for the film production. The films so produced were characterized using x-ray dif-fraction and scanning electron microscopy. It was found that while coevaporation of a traditional bulk glass former (Si02) to Zr02 was more effective in producing an amorphous mixture coating, other dopants (Mg0) could also achieve the same end if used in higher con-centrations. Key words: Ceramic coatings; Glassy; MgO; Si02; Thin films; and Zr02.
