UV-Curable SiO2–TiO2 Films for the Realization of Diffractive Optical Elements
Abstract:Hybrid SiO2–TiO2 films are prepared starting from tetraisopropoxy titanate and 3-glycidoxipropyltrimethoxysilane, using the sol–gel process. During the sol synthesis titania clusters grow, conferring to the samples a photocatalytic activity. In this paper we exploit this property for the fabrication of surface-relief gratings. The realized structures are characterized by SEM, AFM and profilometric measurements, while the presence of titania clusters is confirmed by TEM analyses.
