Abstract

Ferroelectric potassium niobate thin films have been deposited by conventional, low pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on several types of oxide substrates. The films were epitaxial with a c-axis orientation normal to the substrate. Atomic force microscopy revealed a surface roughness of 1 - 4 nm. Transmission electron microscopy showed the film/substrate interface to be semi-coherent with lattice misfit accommodated by misfit dislocations. The nonlinear optical properties of the KNbO3 films were measured by a transmission technique. The room temperature, effective second order nonlinear coefficient was 13 pm/V.
