Growth window of α-Ga2O3 on m-plane sapphire by pulsed laser deposition — •C. Petersen, S. Vogt, M. Kneiß, H. von Wenckstern, and M. Grundmann — Universität Leipzig, Felix Bloch Institute for Solid State Physics, Semiconductor Physics Group, Leipzig, Germany

Due to its high bandgap of 4.6-5.3 eV and high predicted breakdown field of 8 MV/cm [1], much attention is drawn to the wide bandgap semiconductor Ga2O3 for applications in high-power devices. However, besides the well-studied thermodynamically stable monoclinic β-phase of Ga2O3, the metastable α-polymorph with corundum structure is gaining scientists’ interest. Since it is isostructural to Al2O3, miscibility over the entire composition range of α-(AlxGa1−x)2O3 can be achieved [2] and the growth on cost-effective sapphire substrates becomes feasible. Thereby m-plane sapphire facilitates the growth of the corundum phase [3] and allows for thin films with electron mobilities as high as 65 cm2(Vs)−1 [4]. We present phase-pure α-Ga2O3 thin films grown on m-plane sapphire over a wide temperature range of 565 C up to 750 C with high cristallinity and surface roughnesses as low as 0.7 nm (RMS). We further demonstrate that for oxygen partial pressures above 0.001 mbar the formation of the monoclinical β-phase and spinel-defective γ-phase occurs and provide a corresponding phase diagram. Resulting samples were investigated employing X-ray diffraction, reciprocal space maps and atomic force microscopy. [1] Higashiwaki, Sc. Sci. Tech., 034001, 2016. [2] Hassa, pss-b, 2000394, 2020.
