Near atmospheric N2 ambient sputtered Au thin films exhibit significant spectral absorptivity over medium to long wave infrared radiations. Thin films were found adequately robust for micropatterning using conventional photolithography and metal lift off processes. Since long term spectral absorptivity is major practical concern for Au blacks, this paper reports on aging behavior of near atmospheric Ar and Ar + N2 (1:1) ambient sputtered infrared absorber Au thin films. Comparative analysis on electrical, morphological and spectral absorption behavior of twenty-five weeks room temperature/vacuum aged Au infrared absorber thin films is performed. The Ar and Ar + N2 ambient sputtered Au thing films have shown anticipated consistency in their physical, electrical and spectral properties regardless the long term aging in this work. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.
