Pulsed laser deposition of Indium Tin Oxide for plasmonic applications

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy


The optical properties of materials at high temperatures, a few hundred degrees above room temperature, is of growing interest for plasmonic applications. Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) has shown promise as an alternative plasmonic material for high-temperature applications operating in the infrared. In this work, ITO thin films have been grown using Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) and their high-temperature properties were investigated using heated ellipsometry.
