Apport à la compréhension des propriétés optiques non linéaires des matériaux à base d'oxyde de tellure VI

Abstract : For several years, SPCTS laboratory of Limoges has focalized his attention to the study of tellurate materials (Te6+ cations-based compounds), whose third order non-linear optical properties (χ(3)) must be superior to those of tellurite materials (Te4+ cations-based compounds) traditionally considered. Indeed, ab initio calculations show those the third order non-linear optical properties of the TeO3-β tellurate compound are about 10 time higher than that of TeO2-α tellurite phase. In this connection, the theoretical study of the (1-x)TeO2+ xTeO3 system was undertaken in order to understand the structural origins of these properties. Results have shown that the increasing of the “polymerization degree” and the decreasing of the energetical gap associated to each structure of this system, with the increasing ratio of Te6+ cations were at the origin of this change of properties. These conclusions were generalized through the study of many oxide compounds such as MnOm and MnTepOm. A special attention was paid to the non-linear properties of the TeO3-β compound. Experimental and theoretical studies allowed highlighting that its exceptional properties were correlated to its chemical bonding properties. Taking into account all these results, the synthesis of tellurate glasses was investigated, through the study of the TeO2-Mg3TeO6 binary system. Besides their great interest for optical applications, tellurate materials are also good candidates for LTCC applications. Therefore the study of the Bi6Te2O15 compound was also managed in this work. Its sintering process was optimized using the “Spark Plasma Sintering” technology, and its dielectric properties measurements have evidenced very promising values.
