Abstract [en]

The dehydrogenation process of hydrogenated switchable mirrors using magnesium-nickel alloy thin film was studied in situ using spectroscopic ellipsometry. Ellipsometric angles Psi and Delta of the switchable mirrors varied drastically as a result of dehydrogenation, which is a transformation from transparent to reflective states. The process was analyzed by dividing into the following three phases. The first phase was the dehydrogenation process of a thin Mg4Ni layer with several nanometers at a hydrogenated Pcl/Mg4Ni interface. The second phase was the dehydrogenation processes of the hydrogenated Mg4Ni layer, which proceeded from the Pd/Mg4Ni interface to the substrate. The final phase was the desorption process of hydrogen, which was absorbed in Mg4Ni as solid solution and the dehydrogenation process was terminated.
