Low boron doped homoepitaxial diamond layers were grown on Ib (100) diamond substrates with oxygen added to the gas mixture. The acceptor density of the samples has been estimated by C(V) and Hall effect to lie close to 1016 cm-3 with a maximum low field Hall mobility value of 1870 cm2/V s at 292 K. The presence of oxygen in the gas phase is shown to be a key parameter to obtain such characteristics. The mobility parameters required to simulate the electrical behavior of devices between 300 K and 500 K are then determined for a wide doping range.

    We show that N-doped ZnO films grown on sapphire can exhibit significant (∼1018 cm-3) room-temperature p-type behavior when sufficient nitrogen (N) is incorporated and the material is annealed appropriately. Substitutional N on the oxygen (O) sublattice is a deep acceptor; however, shallow...

    Thin films containing lead stannates were prepared on single-crystal silicon substrates by annealing Sn/Pb/Si and Pb/Sn/Si structures produced by magnetron sputtering with the use of solid Sn targets and solid or liquid (self-sputtering) Pb targets. The structures were annealed in flowing oxygen...
