Abstract

Multilayered metal/metal-oxide/metal structures are fabricated by pulsed laser deposition in alternating non-reactive and reactive oxidising conditions, by using pure metal targets. The variety of metals used includes tantalum, zinc and indium. Further to the well-known interferometric, etalon, optical behaviour the structures feature additional activation properties owing to the nanoscopic nature of the oxide materials incorporated.
