Combinatorial Thin Film Sputtering Au xAl1- x Alloys: Correlating Composition and Structure with Optical Properties.


:The Au-Al alloy system was investigated via a combinatorial thin film sputtering method for its potential as a plasmonic material. Au xAl1- x combinatorial libraries were cosputtered from Au and Al elemental targets and the composition, phase, and dielectric function of a ∼350 nm film was determined using energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXRD), and spectroscopic ellipsometry, respectively. The phase evolution and optical properties were analyzed after annealing various compositions under a vacuum. The phases present matched the expected phases based on the published Al-Au binary phase diagram at all compositions. Interestingly, the mixed phase Al-AuAl2 region showed the most optical tunability, where a maximum in the real part of the dielectric function progressively shifted to higher energy for increasing gold concentration. For almost pure AuAl2, the imaginary component is largely reduced in the visible range and is comparable to that of pure Al in the UV region. A 20-nm-thick film with composition Au0.74Al0.26 was studied using a (scanning) transmission electron microscope with an in situ laser heating system. The structures of the as-deposited and laser annealed films were determined using selected area diffraction and the bulk plasmon of AuAl2 and Al realized with electron energy loss spectroscopy. Last, the Au-rich solid solution region was investigated as a surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) substrate using the benezenethiol (BT) molecule. Good SERS intensity was maintained up to 30% Al addition where enhancements of 105 to 107 were still observed.
