アモルファスGeカルコゲナイド/銀の界面において光を照射すると拡散が促進される。非破壊かつ時間分解で観測できるJ-PARC(写楽)の中性子反射率測定を用いて、光照射によってAgが初期の急速な拡散から緩やかな拡散と2段階のプロセスを経て、界面の拡散層が形成されている様子を捉えた。

We report our recent results of neutron reflectivity measurements for Ag/a-Ge $$_{x}$$S$$_{1-x}$$ (x=0.2, 0.4) films under light illumination. The neutron reflectivity measurements have been performed on a polarized neutron reflectometer (BL17, SHARAKU) at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), Japan. By using the time-of flight instrument with intensive pulsed neutrons produced by 300kW proton beams, time evolution of the neutron reflectivity under a light illumination has been revealed, with at least 2-min time resolution. From the detailed analysis, it was found for Ag 50nm/Ge $$_{40}$$S $$_{60}$$ 150nm films under a light illumination from the Ag layer side that there are two types of diffusion processes: a fast change observed in the first 10 min after illumination using a xenon lamp, which is then followed by a slow change observed after a 1 hour of additional light exposure. The result indicates that there is a comparatively stable (metastable) state in the Ag-doped Ge $$_{40}$$S $$_{60}$$ layer in terms of Ag composition, and the next silver diffusion process occurs by affecting the Ag-doped Ge $$_{40}$$S $$_{60}$$ layer / interface. This coincides with the Ge $$_{40}$$S $$_{60}$$ results of Wagner et al. obtained for Ag/As-S films. These results are also in accord with the results reported by some of us by modeling of the Ag transport in Ge-Se glass showing the presence of slow and fast moving Ag ions. Our result demonstrated that the idea of a two-step reaction process can be applied to Ge-chalcogenide system. We also discuss illumination-side dependence and Ge-composition dependence of reaction process.
