Epitaxial Niobate Thin Films and Their Nonlinear Optical Properties

  • B. W. Wessels (a1), M. J. Nystrom (a1), J. Chen (a2), D. Studebaker (a2) and T. J. Marks (a2)...

Ferroelectric oxide thin films show considerable potential as electro-optic and non-linear optical materials. Of particular interest are the niobates such as strontium barium niobate and potassium niobate. The growth of these epitaxial oxide films by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) has been investigated. This technique has yielded epitaxial thin films with excellent non-linear optical properties. Issues concerning the epitaxy of these thin films and its relationship to their optical and nonlinear optical properties are discussed.
