  • Dense, thin films of La0.8Sr0.2CrO3 were prepared on fully stabilized yttria-stabilized zirconia, sapphire, and polycrystalline substrates using 90 off axis magnetron sputtering from a stoichiometric LaF3/SrF2/Cr composite target in an Ar atmosphere. Dense, intimately mixed films of LaF3/SrF2/Cr were grown at both ambient sputter temperature and at 400 C with the films deposited at higher temperature exhibiting better adhesion to the substrate. Sputtering rates were typically in the range of 1500 to 2000 Angstroms/hr. Subsequent anneal at 800 C in a H2O/Ar atmosphere converted the films to single-phase La0.8Sr0.2CrO3. The room-temperature deposition of LaF3/SrF2/Cr composite, precursor film permitted the patterningmore » of electrodes for high-temperature electrochemical HC/CO gas sensors that operate using a mixed potential response mechanism. Thin films grown on polycrystalline Al2O3 were used to obtain four-point electronic conductivity measurements.« less
  • PLZT(X/0/100) thin films on MgO(100), Pt/Ti/MgO(100), and Pt/Ti/Si(100) have been prepared by RF-magnetron sputtering process from sintered target with compositions of PLZT(X/0/100), where X = 5, 10, and 15, respectively. The effects of substrate temperature, substrate and gas pressure on deposited thin films were studied. Crystalline and surface characterization was analyzed using XRD, SEM, AES, and AFM. X-ray rocking curves were measured to examine the film orientation. It was observed that the gas pressure was the dominant influence on having (001) preferred orientation. As a result, the degree of c-axis orientation increased as gas pressure decreased.
  • The epitaxial growth, structural properties, and ferroelectric properties of bismuth lanthanum nickel titanate (Bi{sub 1-x}La{sub x}) (Ni{sub 0.5}Ti{sub 0.5})O{sub 3} (BLNT) thin films deposited on Pt(100)/MgO(100) substrates by rf magnetron sputtering have been investigated using x-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscope, and polarization-electric field hysteresis loop measurements. The ferroelectric BLNT(00l) phase with c-axis orientation and a single-phase tetragonal perovskite structure appeared at x{>=}0.3. The tetragonality (c/a) increased significantly from 1.004 to 1.028 with increasing La content. The fabricated BLNT films of x{>=}0.3 indicated the apparent fourfold rotational symmetry observed for a MgO(202) substrate, a bottom Pt(202) electrode, and a BLNT(101) ferroelectricmore » film, based on {phi} scan measurements. These results imply that the present La-substituted BLNT films are grown heteroepitaxially at x{>=}0.3. It was confirmed that Bi in the BLNT films is in a trivalent state at A sites in the perovskite crystal, based on x-ray anomalous diffraction measurements and x-ray absorption near edge structure spectra. The sputtering technique using compacted powder targets designed by taking the bond dissociation energy of metal oxides into account provided epitaxial perovskite-structured BLNT thin films on Pt(100)/MgO(100) substrates. It is shown that the c-axis oriented epitaxial BLNT film exhibits a hysteresis loop shape with a P{sub r} value of 12 {mu}C/cm{sup 2} that is comparable to typical high-performance Bi{sub 3.25}La{sub 0.75}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 12} (BLT) film.« less
  • Using a model cathode-electrolyte system composed of epitaxial thin-films of La{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}MnO{sub 3-{delta}} (LSM) on single crystal yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ), we investigated changes in the cation concentration profile in the LSM during heating and under applied potential using grazing incidence x-rays. Pulsed laser deposition (PLD) was used to grow epitaxial LSM(011) on YSZ(111). At room temperature, we find that Sr segregates to form Sr enriched nanoparticles and upon heating the sample to 700 C, Sr is slowly reincorporated into the film. We also find different amounts of Sr segregation as the X-ray beam is moved across the sample. Themore » variation in the amount of Sr segregation is greater on the sample that has been subject to 72 hours of applied potential, suggesting that the electrochemistry plays a role in the Sr segregation.« less
  • Growth temperature was found to play a crucial role in determining the structure of stoichiometric TiN films deposited on Si(100) by reactive magnetron sputtering. X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and reflection high-energy electron diffraction were used to show that films deposited at substrate temperatures T{sub s} ranging from 700 to 1100C were polycrystalline, with either (100) preferred orientation or mixed (100) and (111) orientations. Films deposited using a two-temperature technique were epitaxial with the relationships TiN(100)//Si(100) and TiN(011) but with considerable misorientation. The most highly oriented films were obtained when 45 nm was first deposited at T{sub s} =more » 750C, followed by 250 nm at 1,000C. High-resolution cross-sectional TEM studies showed that increasing the nucleation temperature above 750C led to random orientation of TiN lattice fringes relative to the Si lattice. This was explained by the small energy difference between oriented and misoriented TiN nuclei due to the large lattice mismatch (22%).« less
