Physics of Nanostructures


The structure and dielectric characteristics of strontium barium niobate thin films deposited on single-crystalline silicon substrates without buffer layers are studied. It is found that the c axis in these heterostructures runs largely normally to the substrate surface and the a and b axes are randomly oriented in the plane of the substrate. The polarization relaxation in such heterostructures is investigated. It is shown that the film–substrate interface in the heterostructures grown by rf cathode sputtering may contain a low amount of long-lived charged defects.
