Abstract:

Chalcogenide glasses have attracted considerable attention and found various applications due to their infrared transparency and other optical properties. The As–S–Se chalcogenide glass, with its large glass-formation domain and favorable nonlinear property, is a promising candidate system for tailoring important optical properties through modification of glass composition. In this context, a systematic study on ternary As–S–Se glass, chalcogen-rich versus well-studied stochiometric compositions, has been carried out using three different techniques: Raman spectroscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and extended x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy. These complementary techniques lead to a consistent understanding of the role of S∕SeS∕Se ratio in chalcogen-rich As–S–Se glasses, as compared to stochiometric composition, and to provide insight into the structural units (such as the mixed pyramidal units) and evidence for the existence of homopolar bonds (such as Se–Se, S–S, and Se–S), which are the possible structural origin of the high nonlinearity in these glasses.L
