Abstract

TiO 2 ―Ta 2 O 5 composite films were prepared by a radio frequency ion-beam sputtering deposition process, and the refractive indices and extinction coefficients of the composite films were found to be between those of the TiO 2 and Ta 2 O 5 films. The structure of the as-deposited films was amorphous, and the surface roughness was approximately 0.1   nm . The residual stress of the composite films was less than that of pure TiO 2 film. The structure of the composite films after annealing was amorphous, with low surface roughness and slightly increased residual stress. The film containing 6.3% TiO 2 displayed better properties than either the pure TiO 2 or the pure Ta 2 O 5 film.
