Abstract

The different phases formed in Zn1−xFexO thin films where x varies from 0 to 1, as well as their structural characteristics and physical properties, have been investigated. In particular, the interrelationships between the iron concentration, the oxygen composition and the microstructure of the films have been determined. The Zn1−xFexO films were grown on c-cut sapphire substrates by pulsed-laser deposition. For 0 < x < 0.35, epitaxial films with a wurtzite (ZnO like) structure were obtained, while for 0.65 < x < 1, spinel (Fe3O4 like) epitaxial films were observed. In the intermediate region (0.35 < x < 0.65) the phase separation of the Zn1−xFexO films leads to the formation of both wurtzite and spinel phases. Whatever is the x value, the films display well-defined in-plane epitaxial relationships between the wurtzite (or spinel) phase and the substrate. The optical, electrical and magnetic properties of the Zn1−xFexO films are discussed in relation with their structural characteristics.
