LiNbO3 films: Potential application, synthesis techniques, structure, properties by M. P. Sumets; V. A. Dybov; V. M. Ievlev (1361-1377).
The main directions of application and synthesis of lithium niobate (LiNbO3) and the advantages and drawbacks of the synthesis techniques are considered. The results of structural and morphological characteristics appropriate for use in the creation of devices are shown. The tasks for successful implementation of LiNbO3 films into novel devices are formulated.
