LPE Growth of Textured KNbO3 Film Using SrTiO3 Substrate and V2O5 Flux
KNbO3 thin films were grown on (100) and (110) SrTiO3 substrates by liquid phase epitaxy (LPE) technique. The film orientation and surface morphology were characterized by XRD and AFM, respectively. The limited phase diagram of K2O-Nb2O5-V2O5 system was prepared by DTA measurement to investigate the effect of V2O5 flux on the LPE growth of KNbO3 film. The use of V2O5 flux enhanced a film growth rate at lower growth temperature.
