Abstract
A DEMONSTRATION OF THE FEASABILITY OF A LASER-ASSISTED CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION PROCESS FOR MERCURY CADIUM TELLURIDE FILMS UTILIZING LARGE AREA, UNIFORM RARE-GAS HALIDE EXCIMER LASER ILLUMINATION IS PROPOSED. AN INITIAL TASK FROM THIS PURPOSE WILL BE TO CONDUCT A TRADEOFF STUDY TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM GEOMETRY FO LAVCD. THIS WILL BE FOLOWED BY THE TASK OF DESIGNING, BUILDING AND TESTING AN APPROPRIATE GAS-FLOW SYSTEM AND DESPOSITON CHAMBER FOR LAVCDGROWTH OF SUCH FILMS WE WILL CHARACTERIZE THEM USING AN ARRAY OF TECHNIQUES INCLUDING SECONDARY ION MASS SPECOMETRY,TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY AND SYNCHROTON X-RAY TOPOGRAPHY, WE WILL ALSO INVESTIGATE GRADED STOICHIOMETRY FILMS.
