Abstract

Ba0.9Sr0.1TiO3 (BST)-based and PbZr0.4Ti0.6O3-based quasi-periodic multilayers consisting of dense and porous ferroelectric layers have been fabricated by solgel technique using chemical solutions containing polyethylene glycol (PEG) or polyvinylpyrrolidone k30 (PVP). All multilayers exhibit good performance as dielectric mirrors. For each multilayer, the maximum peak reflectivity is over 90% and the photonic stopband width is no less than 30nm at room temperature. The reflection-band position can be easily tuned by varying the thickness of the bilayer. With the same processing conditions and number of periods, the Bragg reflection performance is almost the same for quasi-periodic PZT multilayers derived from two precursors containing different polymers. The BST multilayers deposited by using a PVP-containing precursor are superior in optical properties, including peak reflectivities and stop-band width, to those deposited by using the PEG-containing solution.
