Title: Electron microscopy of iron chalcogenide FeTe(Se) films

Abstract

The structure of Fe{sub 1+δ}Te{sub 1−x}Se{sub x} films (x = 0; 0.05) grown on single-crystal MgO and LaAlO{sub 3} substrates has been investigated by transmission and scanning transmission electron microscopy. The study of Fe{sub 1.11}Te/MgO structures has revealed two crystallographic orientation relationships between the film and substrate. It is shown that the lattice mismatch between the film and substrate is compensated for by the formation of misfit dislocations. The Burgers vector projection is determined. The stresses in the film can partially be compensated for due to the formation of an intermediate disordered layer. It is shown that a FeTe{sub 0.5}Se{sub 0.5} film grown on a LaAlO{sub 3} substrate is single-crystal and that the FeTe{sub 0.5}Se{sub 0.5}/LaAlO{sub 3} interface in a selected region is coherent. The orientation relationships between the film and substrate are also determined for this case.
