Enhancement of Cr and Fe diffusion in ZnSe/S laser crystals via annealing in vapors of Zn and hot isostatic pressing

Academic Article


  • Enhancement of the thermal diffusion rates of Cr and Fe in ZnSe/ZnS was studied using two different approaches. Enhancement of Cr diffusion in ZnSe was achieved by application of excess Zn atmosphere during the thermal diffusion of Cr, where ~2.2 times improvement in the diffusion coefficient was seen over the standard diffusion technique. Also, the diffusion coefficient of Fe in ZnSe and ZnS was improved by 13 and 14 times, respectively, when diffusion was done under hot isostatic pressing.
