Title: Controlled optical properties via chemical composition tuning in molybdenum-incorporated β-Ga 2O 3 nanocrystalline films

Abstract

Here, an approach is presented to design refractory-metal incorporated Ga 2O 3-based materials with controlled structural and optical properties. The molybdenum (Mo)-content in Ga 2O 3 was varied from 0 to 11 at% in the sputter-deposited Ga-Mo-O films. Molybdenum was found to significantly affect the structure and optical properties. While low Mo-content (≤4 at%) results in the formation of single-phase (β-Ga 2O 3), higher Mo-content results in amorphization. Chemically-induced band gap variability (E g ~ 1 eV) coupled with structure-modification indicates the electronic-structure changes in Ga-Mo-O. The linear relationship between chemical-composition and optical properties suggests that tailoring the optical-quality and performance of Ga-Mo-O films is possible by tuning the Mo-content.
