Description
Large band gap alkali halides are known to have interesting optical properties. Though expected to betransparent in nature, defects in the crystal structure results in alkali halides having colors. The defectsgives rise to new energy levels in the band structure, called color centers. Defects are easily generatedon film fabrication and hence study of alkali halides promise to be interesting. In this manuscript wereport the optical properties of cesium chloride (CsCl) thin films. We have correlated the opticalproperties of the films with the lattice size of the polycrystalline films, thus highlighting the strongrelationship between the structure and optical properties of alkali halide films.
