Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to characterize the compounds grown on copper during the oxidation at low temperature (T < 523 K) by optical methods: photoluminescence and UV‐Visible‐NIR diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. Two cuprous oxides Cu2O and Cu3O2 have been studied. The absorption of Cu2O films in the range 450–630 nm is mainly due to non‐stoichiometry bands associated with copper and oxygen vacancies. Cu3O2 is characterized by an optical band gap greater than that of Cu2O (respectively 2.25 and 1.95 eV) and by an intense luminescence emission at 760–780 nm. Cu3O2 may be considered as a gross defect structure of Cu2O (a Cu 2O = 0.427 nm, a Cu 3O 2 = 0.431 nm). The experimental approach of the oxidation mechanism reveals that at 423 K Cu2O is the primary product which later on is transformed into Cu3O2. Experimental and calculated optical absorption curves disclose the nucleation of CuO inside the cuprous oxides layer for oxidation in the range 473–523 K.
