Chloride epitaxy of β-Ga2O3 layers grown on c-sapphire substrates

The method of chloride epitaxy is employed to grow β-Ga2O3 epitaxial layers on a c-sapphire substrate. Purified dry air is used as the source of oxygen. The layers are studied using the methods of X-ray diffraction, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and micro-Raman spectroscopy. It is found that the growth plane of the layers is (\(\bar 2\)01), parallel to the substrate surface. The layers consist of separate large crystalline grains of three different in-plane orientations rotated relative to each other in the growth plane by 60°. Misorientation can be caused by the different symmetry of the substrate and the epitaxial layer.
