The gallium oxide films were deposited on (001) sapphire at various substrate temperatures from 400 to 1000 degrees C by pulsed laser deposition using a KrF excimer laser. The etching treatments for as-grown gallium oxide were performed in a 49 mol% HF solution at room temperature. The structural, optical and etching properties of the grown films were investigated in terms of high resolution X-ray diffraction, optical transmittance, atomic force microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The phase transition from amorphous to polycrystalline beta-Ga2O3 structure was observed with increasing growth temperature. From the optical transmittance measurements, the films grown at 550-1000 degrees C exhibit a clear absorption edge at deep ultraviolet region around 250-275 nm wavelength. It was found that the optical band gap of gallium oxide films increased from 4.56 to 4.87 eV when the substrate temperature increased from 400 to 1000 degrees C. As the substrate temperature increases, the crystallinity of gallium oxide film is enhanced and the etching rate is decreased. The high etching rate of 490 nm s(-1) gallium oxide film grown at 400 degrees C could be due to its amorphous phase, which is referred to higher void ratio and looser atomic structure.
