    Abstract. Nanocomposite films formed by Cu nanocrystals (NCs) with sizes < 10 nm embedded in an amorphous Al[sub 2] O[sub 3] host have been grown by alternate pulsed-laser deposition both in vacuum and in a buffer gas (Ar) up to pressures of 0.1 Torr. The dimensions, dimension distributions, and...

    The thermal stability of electrically conducting SrRuO3 thin films grown by pulsed-laser deposition on (001) SrTiO3 substrates has been investigated by atomic force microscopy and reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED) under reducing conditions (25-800 °C in 10-7-10-2 Torr O2)....

    We report the structural and magnetoelectrical properties of La0.7Ca0.3MnO3/BaTiO3 perovskite superlattices grown on (001)-oriented SrTiO3 by the pulsed laser deposition technique. Magnetic hysteresis loops, together with temperature dependent magnetic properties, exhibit well-defined coercivity...

    Epitaxial films of magnetically doped SrTi1−xFexO3 (x<=0.5) were grown on (001) LaAlO3 substrates by pulsed laser deposition. Structural and magnetic studies indicate that the observed ferromagnetism is intrinsic rather than from an impurity phase. The higher transparency with Fe doping is...

    The silicide formation by annealing plasma-enhanced atomic layer deposition (PE-ALD) Co and physical vapor deposition (PVD) Co was comparatively studied. Very pure Co films were deposited by PE-ALD with CoCp2 and NH3 plasma. However, various analyses have shown that amorphous SiNx interlayer was...

    Cubic-phase heteroepitaxial domain Mg0.4Zn0.6O films have been realized on both LaAlO3(100) and MgO (100) substrates using pulsed laser deposition. Different domain matching epitaxy relationships were obtained due to the different lattice mismatch between the films and substrates. A 45°...
