ABSTRACT
We present Raman study of Fe3O4 films of different thicknesses grown on single crystal Si and MgO substrates to investigate the presence of antiphase boundaries (APBs). X-ray diffraction and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements indicate that films are single phase Fe3O4 on both the substrates. The changes in frequency and linewidth of different Raman modes [A1g and T2g(3)] are monitored and the electron-phonon coupling parameter (λ) is computed. λ is correlated with the combined effect of strain and APBs present in the grown films and it is concluded that the films grown on Si substrates are free from APBs.

    In La1- x Ca x Co1- y Fe y O3 perovskites, the calcium substitution modifies the crystalline structure toward a pseudocubic one and produces an electronic unbalance, compensated by the formation of oxygen vacancies and Fe4+ ions. It also increases slightly the ethanol conversion in total...
