Abstract

We prepared high-quality epitaxial thin films of charge density wave system Rb0.3MoO3 on MgO substrate. In continuation to the femtosecond spectroscopy performed in,1 new studies of femtosecond time-resolved Terahertz conductivity dynamics, necessary to directly probe the relaxation processes of photo-excited carriers, need high-quality thin films. Film morphology was characterized by EDS, AFM, and STM, while optical and electrical properties were studied using FTIR and UV-Vis spectrometers, and terahertz conductivity measurements, respectively. Certain degree of crystallinity has been observed in some films by x-ray diffraction.
