Paper Abstract

Thin films of erbium-doped YAG (Y3Al5O12) were grown by pulsed laser deposition, followed by high temperature (>1100 degree(s)C) post-annealing. The deposition was carried out on MgO and MgAl2O4 substrates in ultra-high vacuum chamber with KrF excimer laser at fluences 2.5-3 J/cm2. Influence of growth conditions (substrate temperature, gas environment, annealing temperature) on structural, topographical, and optical properties was investigated by using optical spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and atomic force microscopy.
