Growth and Characterization of Al1-xInxN Nanospirals
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this work columnar nanospirals of AlInN were grown on top of TiN-coated sapphire substrates by magnetron sputtering. A variety of samples with different growth parameters were fabricated and investigated.
The main objectives in this work were to optimize the degree of circular polarization and to control the active wavelength region for where this polarization effect occurs. Attempts were made to achieve a high degree of circular polarization in both reflected and transmitted light.
It is shown that for reflected light it is possible to achieve a high degree of circular polarization within the visible wavelength regions. For transmitted light the concept of achieving circularly polarized light is proven.
