  • Structural phase transformations in (100)-oriented Pb(In{sub 1/2}Nb{sub 1/2})O{sub 3}-Pb(Mg{sub 1/3}Nb{sub 2/3})O{sub 3}-PbTiO{sub 3} single crystals have been investigated by X-ray diffraction. A cubic (C) → tetragonal (T) → monoclinic-C (M{sub C}) transformation sequence was observed in the field-cooled condition. Two phase coexistence regions of C + T and T + M{sub C} were found. In addition to an increase in the C → T phase transition temperature and a decrease of the T → M{sub C} one, a broadening of the coexistence regions was also found with increasing field. This broadening can be explained by the presence of polar nano regions within the C, T, and M{sub C} phase regions.
  • The frequency dependence of the noise of VO/sub 2/ monocrystals with a metallic-phase channel is related to the modulation amplitude of the direct current flowing through the sample. (AIP)
  • A study was made of the spectral density of the noise voltage developed in VO/sub 2/ single crystals in the semiconductor and metal phases and in the presence of a metal-phase channel. The noise spectra were used to determine the minimum possible switching time which was tauapprox. =5.6 x 10/sup -9/ sec. The temperature of the metal-phase channel was determined in the static regime and the time dependence of the temperature was found in the pulse regime. The temperature of the channel was a function of time and its maximum value in the pulse regime exceeded considerably the temperature inmore » the static regime.« less
  • Vanadium dioxide (VO{sub 2}) epitaxial films were grown on perovskite single-crystal strontium titanate (SrTiO{sub 3}) substrates by reactive radio-frequency magnetron sputtering. The growth temperature-dependent metal–insulator transition (MIT) behavior of the VO{sub 2} epitaxial films was then investigated. We found that the order of magnitude of resistance change across the MIT increased from 10{sup 2} to 10{sup 4} with increasing growth temperature. In contrast, the temperature of the MIT does not strongly depend on the growth temperature and is fairly stable at about 345 K. On one hand, the increasing magnitude of the MIT is attributed to the better crystallinity and thusmore » larger grain size in the (010)-VO{sub 2}/(111)-SrTiO{sub 3} epitaxial films at elevated temperature. On the other hand, the strain states do not change in the VO{sub 2} films deposited at various temperatures, resulting in stable V-V chains and V-O bonds in the VO{sub 2} epitaxial films. The accompanied orbital occupancy near the Fermi level is also constant and thus the MIT temperatures of VO{sub 2} films deposited at various temperatures are nearly the same. This work demonstrates that high-quality VO{sub 2} can be grown on perovskite substrates, showing potential for integration into oxide heterostructures and superlattices.« less
