Phase Transitions


Heteroepitaxial Sr0.61Ba0.39Nb2O6 films have been formed on MgO(001) substrates by RF deposition in an oxygen atmosphere. The film orientation with respect to the substrate is investigated using X-ray diffraction. The permittivity dispersion parameters in the visible range are determined by measuring optical transmission spectra. The films are found to have a wider band gap and a smaller refractive index as compared with the single-crystal material.
