Title (EN) CORROSION RESISTANT OPTICAL DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF OPTIQUE RÉSISTANT À LA CORROSION
Abstract:
(EN) A corrosion-resistant optical device is disclosed. The device includes a substrate, a silver layer upon the substrate, and an insulating layer that provides abrasion resistance. The device is immersed in a thiol-rich solution. The thiols form a corrosion-inhibiting monolayer upon any exposed silver surface. This increases the environmental resistance of the optical device, keeping water from interacting with the silver layer.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif optique résistant à la corrosion. Le dispositif comprend un substrat, une couche d'argent sur le substrat, et une couche isolante qui confère une résistance à l'abrasion. Le dispositif est immergé dans une solution riche en thiols. Les thiols forment une monocouche d'inhibition de la corrosion sur n'importe quelle surface d'argent exposée. Cela augmente la résistance à l'environnement du dispositif optique, en empêchant l'eau d'interagir avec la couche d'argent.
