ABSTRACT
The origin of the superstructure observed in epitaxial yttrium oxide (Y[SUB2]O[SUB3]) layers on Si(001) is determined by electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS). The oxygen K edge is measured both in the superstructure and a defect-free region of the Y[SUB2]O[SUB3] layers and they are compared to EELS spectra obtained from bulk stoichiometric and reduced Y[SUB2]O[SUB3]. It is shown that as a result of the epitaxial growth, oxygen vacancies order into a superstructure creating nonstoichiometric regions in an otherwise stoichiometric Y[SUB2]O[SUB3] layer. Furthermore, it is shown that oxygen deficiency introduces a change of the density of states of the lower conduction band of Y[SUB2]O[SUB3].
