ABSTRACT
Recent studies have reported thin films containing a significant fraction of the high-pressure orthorhombic phase of tin dioxide (o-SnO2). Although the generation of a pure film containing this metastable phase is an important goal, a careful examination of claims to that effect show that this goal remains to be achieved.

    We report the effect of a definite miscut of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) (100) single-crystal substrates onto the number of azimuthal domain variants within epitaxial La-substituted Bi4Ti3O12 (BLT) ferroelectric thin films as well as within SrRuO3 electrode layers, both grown on these...

    An extremely high-Q hybrid acoustic mode was observed in laterally excited c-axis ZnO solidly mounted resonators. The acoustic velocity through the thickness is approximately 3500 m/s which is inconsistent with both the thickness shear and longitudinal modes (2800 and 6400 m/s, respectively). In...

    The authors report on the 394 nm UV light emission from low-temperature sputtered n-ZnO/SiO2 thin films on top of the p-GaN heterostructure. They compare samples with and without a SiO2 current blocking layer. With a SiO2 layer, electroluminescence spectrum shows a sharp emission peak at 394 nm,...
