Abstract
© 2020 Realizing laterally continuous, ultraflat silver (Ag) single-crystal films is a significant technological challenge. Ag thin film grown on various hetero-substrates has been used in numerous applications, due to its superior electrical and optical properties. To exploit these properties without degradation and apply these films to high-precision patterning, surface plasmonics, and so on, a high-quality thin film having an ultraflat surface and few grain boundaries is needed. A zinc oxide (ZnO) buffer layer can be used to facilitate the growth of a single-crystalline Ag thin film on a sapphire (Al2O3) substrate. ZnO films deposited on Al2O3 substrates have grain boundaries; however, Ag films grown on ZnO are nearly grain-free and close to single-crystalline quality. This can be explained by the exceptionally small extended atomic distance mismatch, of ~0.08%, between Ag and Al2O3, in which the ninth Ag atom and the eighth Al atom are matched in terms of coherence and periodicity. A modified radio frequency sputtering system with a single-crystal Ag target enabled wafer-scale growth of ultraflat, grain-free Ag films. The proposed approach using a ZnO buffer provides a new method for fabricating Ag films with high adhesion, anti-oxidative stability, and superior optical properties, and allows for easy nano-patterning
