Abstract

Rapidly growing attention is being recently directed towards the investigation of the ionic conducting properties of oxide film hetero-structures. Experimental evidence has been reported showing that interfacial phenomena at hetero-phase interfaces give rise to faster ion conduction pathways than the bulk or homo-phase interfaces. Nonetheless, a deeper understanding of the interface transport properties is still needed to exploit these effects. In this work, we have investigated the growth mechanism of different superlattices fabricated by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) coupling doped and undoped cerium and zirconium oxides. Single crystalline MgO wafers were selected as deposition substrates. The superlattice structures were obtained by means of a thin buffer layer of SrTiO 3 (STO). The growth mechanism was investigated by reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses.
