(001)-oriented α-Al2O3 films were prepared on polycrystalline AlN substrates by laser chemical vapor deposition at deposition temperatures of 1373-1455 K. The (001) orientation degree increased from 36% to 90% with increasing vaporization temperature of the Al precursor from 438 to 453 K; the deposition rate also increased from 82 to 175 μm h-1. The (001)-oriented α-Al2O3 films exhibited columnar growth, and hexagonal terraces of α-Al2O3 (001) plane were observed on the surface.
