ABSTRACT
Thin-film solid solutions of Sm[sub x]Nd[sub 1-x]NiO[sub 3] were synthesized on NdGaO[sub 3] substrates by pulsed-laser deposition using alternating NdNiO[sub 3] and SmNiO[sub 3] targets. The films were characterized by x-ray diffraction and variable-temperature four-probe conductivity measurements. The films grow in the {100}[sub pseudocubic] direction. There is a nearly linear increase of the metal-insulator transition from 199 K for x = 0 to 378 K for x = 1, with the composition corresponding to x = 0.6 displaying a transition near room temperature.

    P-type conductivity has been observed in CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) ceramics and also in thin films deposited by pulsed laser deposition. I-V and C-V relationships of the CCTO thin films showed characteristics typical of a tunnel metal-insulator-semiconductor structure, evidencing its capacitance...

    The potential growth modes for epitaxial growth of Fe3O4 on SrTiO3 (001) are investigated through control of the energetics of the pulsed-laser deposition growth process (via substrate temperature and laser fluence). We find that Fe3O4 grows epitaxially in three distinct growth modes: 2D-like,...

    The structural phase transition (SPT) of VO2 films epitaxially grown on c-Al2O3 substrates by pulsed laser deposition and reactive sputtering was investigated by in situ temperature-controlled x-ray diffraction (XRD) across metal-insulator transition (MIT). An intermediate insulator phase was...

    We have grown epitaxial SmNiO3 thin films under tensile strain on SrTiO3 (001) substrate by pulsed laser deposition. A metal-insulator transition is found at about 394 K similar to observations made in bulk samples. The x-ray reciprocal space map suggests that the film undergoes partial strain...

    VO2 films have been grown on Si substrate using pulse laser deposition technique. The as-deposited film prepared by V2O3 target is found to possess signatures of V2O5 phase. Up on annealing at 780°C the film transforms to VO2 phase. The annealed film is found to be highly oriented along (011)...
