Abstract

We have successfully prepared EuO films on Si(100) wafers via pulsed laser deposition (PLD). It is well recognized that EuO grows with texture growth along (100) but the addition of 4% Gd changes the lattice constant and the texture growth to (111) as well as having a profound influence on the magnetic properties. The differences in the effects between Gd doping and oxygen vacancies, both expected to be n-type (donor state) dopants in EuO, are discussed.
