14 July 1995 Measurements of the temporal response of vanadium oxide thin films in the infrared

High resolution 400ns TEA carbon dioxide laser pulses with a 100ns rise time were used to observe the 10.6 micrometers radiation transmitted by polycrystalline vanadium oxide coatings deposited on germanium substrates. The variation in the transmission and reflection of the vanadium oxide coatings was simultaneously observed throughout the duration of the incident pulse over a range of incident fluences. The observation of fluence related changes in the behavior of both the transmitted and reflected pulses showed that the coatings exhibited a semiconductor-to-metallic phase transition that was power related and not energy dependent.
