Combinatorial Chemical Vapor Deposition of Lithium Niobate Thin Films
Combinatorial lithium niobate deposition on 150 mm naturally oxidized silicon (100) wafers in a high-vacuum chemical vapor deposition reactor using Li(OBut) and Nb(OEt)4(dmae) is presented. The novel precursor supply system allows individual spatial control of precursors impinging rates on the substrate. This results in variations of the film properties in a single experiment at a certain substrate temperature due to the influence of different precursors flow rates and ratios. It efficiently leads to deposition conditions to achieve highly <001> oriented polycrystalline lithium niobate films.
