    Abstract. A novel off-axis pulsed-laser deposition (PLD) system for ferroelectric oxide thin films has been developed. The substrates are mounted "upside-down" and are rotating. The maximum substrate size is 2 inches in diameter. The optical and structural properties of the grown BaTiO[sub 3]...

    The nanostructure, stoichiometry and sensing performance of SnO2 films grown by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) have been shown to be highly sensitive to the deposition conditions. In particular, PLD deposition under vacuum is known to produce films that are composed of both a polycrystalline SnO2...

    The stoichiometry of boron carbide thin films was controlled in the range of 0.1-8.9 via pulsed laser deposition by using boron-carbon dual-targets. The amorphous films sized 50 nm in thickness. The reaction rate of boron and carbon atoms increased with the increasing of target rotating speed....

    We have investigated the effects of laser energy density and oxygen pressure on the cation stoichiometry of homoepitaxial (001) SrTiO3 thin film grown by pulsed laser deposition. A broad growth window was found for near stoichiometric, uniform SrTiO3 thin films. At oxygen pressures, at or below...
