    Abstract. YBCO thin films and buffer layers are deposited by a special PLD setup with an 8-cm line focus on cylindrical targets and substrate scanning perpendicular to it. Different kinds of substrates (SrTiO[sub 3], MgO, LaAlO[sub 3], Y-ZrO[sub 2] and sapphire) as large as 7 x 20 cm[sup 2] were...

    The initial growth behavior and resulting microstructural properties of heteroepitaxial ZnO thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition on sapphire (0001) substrates were investigated. High-resolution x-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy studies revealed that the initial...

    We have successfully grown (1-x)Pb(Mg1/3- Nb1/3)O3-xPbTiO3 (PMN-PT) thin films with x=0.3, 0.35 and 0.4 by pulsed laser deposition. X-ray-diffraction studies reveal that the PMN-PT films grown on La0.5Sr0.5CoO3/LaAlO3 substrates form epitaxial heterostructures. Composition control and remedial...

    We report on the growth of high-k titanium silicate (TiSiO4) thin films by means of the pulsed-laser ablation of a TiO2/SiO2 composite target. We present a systematic investigation of the effect of the oxygen background pressure [P(O2)] and the substrate deposition temperature (Td) on both the...

    In this letter, we report on increased tunability of Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3 (BST) thin films by use of Ta2O5 and TiO2 films as buffer layers between BST and Si substrates. Ta2O5 and TiO2 butler layers were grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) onto Si substrates followed by pulsed laser deposition of...

    FePt films have been prepared by pulsed laser deposition at a temperature of 800 °C onto (001) oriented single crystalline (MgO, SrTiO3) as well as amorphous substrates (Si3N4, glass) with and without a (001) textured MgO buffer layer. Although all films have been prepared under identical...

    AgInSe[sub 2] thin films on glass substrates have been prepared by pulsed laser deposition. Rectifying heterojunctions with a pronounced photovoltaic effect have been fabricated for the first time by placing such films in optical contact with layered III-VI (InSe, GaSe) semiconductors. The...

    Islands of constant width at half maximum of approximately 100 nm have been observed during the pulsed laser deposition of films of nominal thickness from 0.7 to 3.0 nm of the material YBa[sub 2] Cu[sub 3] O[sub 7-d] (YBCO) on substrates of SrTiO[sub 3] . The critical island dimensions of width,...
