Abstract: Lanthanum-modified lead zirconate titanate and lead zirconate titanate epitaxial films with (100) and (111) orientations were grown respectively on (100) and (111) niobium, lending conductivity to strontium titanate through chemical solution deposition. This study investigated changes in the ordinary and extraordinary refractive index no and ne induced in these films by an electric field using the prism-coupling method. In the (100) epitaxial PZT 30/70 film, anisotropic electro-optic effects arise from the Pockels effect. The isotropic electro-optic effect, which is no = ne , was achieved on (100) epitaxial PLZT 8/65/35 and PZT 70/30 films.

Abstract: Two-dimensional Pb0.865La0.09Zr0.65Ti0.35O3 (PLZT) photonic crystals with hexagonal arrays of air holes on (001) Pt-sputtered magnesium oxide substrates were fabricated using a sol-gel process with resist molds. The PLZT photonic crystals have a thickness of 200 nm, and the period of hexagonal array and the radius of air holes were 400 or 450 nm and 135 or 165 nm, respectively. The PLZT photonic crystals were primarily orientated along the c-axis. The strain hysteresis loop of the photonic crystals suggested that the photonic crystals are ferroelectric. Several peaks within range of wavelength between 500 nm and 1000 nm appeared in the optical reflection spectra from the cleaved facet of the photonic crystals. The peaks have polarization dependence and the frequency bands of the each peak were close to that of photonic band gaps (PBGs) expected by the calculations.

Abstract: In this study, BiFeO3 (BFO) epitaxial film was deposited on SrRuO3 (100)/SrTiO3 (100) substrates using pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Phase pure BFO thin film was obtained. Introducing a mask between the target and substrate in PLD improved the surface roughness from 47.8 nm (RMS, without mask) to 7.7 nm (RMS, with mask). The composition and electrical properties of BFO thin film were assessed after annealing for 1 h in Ar, N2, or O2 atmosphere at 600°C. The P-E hysteresis properties improved only in the O2 atmosphere. After annealing under O2 atmosphere, the leakage current decreased from 6.1 × 10-2 A/cm to 2.9 × 10-2 A/cm at 200 kV/cm, as in the other annealing atmospheres, but 2Pr increased from 35 BC/cm2 to 50 BC/cm2.

Abstract: The influence of a rare earth oxide/yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) double buffer layer structure on the orientation of a perovskite thin film was investigated on (100) silicon substrates. A calcium titanate perovskite film with a mixture of (110) and (100) orientation was grown epitaxially on a YSZ buffer layer. Since rare earth oxides have almost the same chemical nature and different lattice parameters, it is anticipated that the lattice parameter of the buffer layer can be controlled by changing the rare earth element. An (100) oriented epitaxial calcium titanate film was obtained by changing the composition of rare earth oxides on the YSZ/Si substrate.
