Title: Molecular beam epitaxy of YMnO{sub 3} on c-plane GaN

Abstract

Epitaxial YMnO{sub 3} films were grown on (0001) GaN-on-sapphire templates using molecular beam epitaxy. The YMnO{sub 3} maintained the (0001) orientation with an in-plane YMnO{sub 3}/GaN epitaxial relationship of (0001) parallel (0001); [1100] parallel [1120]. The YMnO{sub 3} was ferroelectric at room temperature with a remanent polarization of {approx}3.2 {mu}C/cm{sup 2} and a saturation polarization of {approx}12 {mu}C/cm{sup 2}. This heterostructure is a promising candidate for multifunctional structures that integrate ferroelectrics with GaN-based high-power and short-wavelength light-emitting devices.
