Abstract

Chalcogenide vitreous semiconductors (ChVS) have attracted the attention of scientists and engineers for about thirty years. Among the important new phenomena discovered in these materials and not observed in other solids are the photo-induced changes of the optical properties. These phenomena became of interest after experiments showed the reversibility of the transmission and refractive index changes in stoichiometric arsenic chalcogenides [1].
