What is Titanium Dioxide? 

TiO2 is the chemical compound with the highest refractive index in the visible range. Films deposited from titanium oxides starting compositions are of the composition TiO2.

What are some Evaporation techniques for Titanium dioxide?

Titanium dioxide can be thermally evaporated from a tungsten or Mo-boat. To ensure an acceptable level of outgassing, pressure should be monitored. Titanium dioxide can also be deposited reactively by electron beam evaporation from a Cu-crucible with Mo-liner or from Mo-boats. It melts completely.

Trititanium pentoxide 

Ti3O5, described as Ti(IV)-Ti(III), is a semiconductor produced by reduction of TiO2 with hydrogen at high temperatures. It is less outgassing than TiO2 during preparation of the melt. It is then faster the preparation to achieve stable conditions before the start of the evaporation process, and there is less risk of spattering.

Evaporation technique for Ti3O5

Trititanium pentoxide can be evaporated from a tungsten boat and it melts without spattering and evaporates smoothly. A Mo-liner can also be employed. Due to its low thermal conductivity of this liner, it is easier to melt the material with less e-beam power before reaching evaporation temperature.

Titanium sesquioxide 

Ti2O3, called titanium sesquioxide, is prepared by reacting titanium dioxide with titanium metal at 1600oC.

Evaporation technique for Ti2O3

Ti2O3 is evaporated reactively by electron beam. Its advantage over TiO2 is that no oxygen is released during the melting process, so the risk of spattering is reduced.
