Published: Influence of PLD conditions on self-assembled PZT nanorods

Our paper entitled “Influence of Deposition Conditions on Self-assembled Growth of Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 Nanorods by Pulsed Laser Deposition at Elevated Oxygen Pressure” has been published in J. Ceram. Soc. Jpn. We found that self-assembled epitaxial PZT nanorods can be grown by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) at an elevated oxygen pressure. The radius of the PZT nanorods was larger at higher substrate temperatures and longer target-substrate distances, which can be explained respectively by the enhanced surface diffusion and shadowing effect of the PLD species.
