Anomalous lattice relaxation mechanics in ZnO/SiC heterostructure

Ashrafi, Almamun; Segawa, Yusaburo


Anomalous lattice relaxation mechanics in ZnOepitaxy deposited on 6H-SiC substrates has been addressed. Thickness-dependent ZnOepitaxy showed that the lattice/strain relaxes into two steps for the layer thicknesses of (i) 10–20 nm, after overcoming the critical thickness of <6 nm and (ii) 480–1000 nm, after the complete strain relaxation. This lattice relaxation contrast has been represented with a schematic model by emphasizing on the tensile and compressive strains associated with the lattice...[Show more]
