Compositional Study of LiNbO$_3$ Thin Films Grown by Liquid Phase Epitaxy

Lithium niobate (LN) films have been obtained on pure congruent single-domain LN substrates by the liquid phase epitaxy technique. Li-rich flux of LiVO$_3$ has been used. The optimum temperature for the film preparation has been found to be 860°C. …

Lattice-Mismatch Induced Stress in Porous Silicon Films

We have studied the stress in porous silicon films with different porosities at the interface with the substrate. Micro-Raman spectra were measured along a cleaved cross section to sample different layer depths. Each spectrum was fit to the phonon …

Determination of Stress in Porous Silicon by Micro-Raman Spectroscopy

We have studied the stress in porous silicon films as a function of depth and porosity using micro-Raman spectroscopy. Raman spectra were measured at different points along a cross section cleaved normal to the layer planes. Each spectrum was fitted …

Espectroscopía Raman

Este capítulo es una introducción a la espectroscopía Raman. Con esta técnica óptica se estudian de forma no destructiva compuestos en estado gaseoso, líquido o sólido. En los materiales permite caracterizar la estructura, el grado de cristalinidad, …

Laser Heating in Porous Silicon Studied by Micro-Raman Spectroscopy

We have measured the temperature rise in nanoporous silicon under strong illumination. A green laser beam was focused with a microscope objective on porous silicon films with porosities between 55% and 80%. The Raman spectrum was measured for power …

On the Compositional Nature of Bulk Doped Periodic Poled Lithium Niobate Crystals

The compositional nature of the Erbium, Neodymium and Yttrium bulk doped periodic poled lithium niobate crystals obtained by the off-centered Czochralski technique has been studied. It has been observed that, in all cases, the impurity concentration …
