摘要: Pulsed laser deposition was used to form epitaxial Y2O3 buffer layers on yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) (111) substrates, followed by formation of epitaxial ZnO. Structural characterization by X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) shows that Y2O(3) has high-quality crystalline characteristics with a smooth (111) surface, providing a good buffer for deposition of ZnO films on YSZ. For ZnO deposition, a two-step growth process had been adopted, which consisted of low-temperature nucleation and high-temperature growth. ZnO films on Y2O3/YSZ have good structural qualities in c-axis orientation with smooth surfaces. Electron diffraction patterns show an orientation relationship of [2 (1) over bar(1) over bar0](ZnO)//[0 (1) over bar1](Y2O3) and (0002)(ZnO)//(222)(Y2O3). High-resolution TEM clearly reveals that both the interfaces of ZnO/Y2O3 and Y2O3/YSZ are flat without the formation of any interlayers. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
