|Abstract:||In this article, we report the effects of insertion of yttrium, gold and yttrium-gold (YAu) metallic nano-slabs on the structural, optical and dielectric properties of ZnSe thin films. The ZnSe thin films which are prepared by the thermal evaporation technique under vacuum pressure of 10-5 mbar exhibit hexagonal structure. While the insertion of the 70 nm thick Y layers does not alter the lattice parameters and stress values, the Au and YAu layers increased the lattice parameters along the a- and c-axes and decreased the stress values. In addition, the insertion of these metallic layers slightly alters the value of the energy band gap and increases the width of the interbands. The light absorbability are increased by 1.4, 2.0 and 2.4 times upon insertion of Y, Au and YAu, slabs, respectively. On the other hand, the dielectric and optical conductivity analyses has shown that the use of the YAu stacked metal layers increases the real part of the dielectric constant, the optical conductivity, the drift mobility and extended the plasmon frequency range from 35.1 to 254.0 (?cm)^(-1), from 1098 to 1766 ?cm?^2/Vs and from 0.94-3.11 GHz to 2.13-4.83 GHz, respectively. The insertion of the two stacked metallic layers between two layers of ZnSe makes the ZnSe more appropriated for thin film transistor technology|
