The synthesis of aluminum nitride thin films by pulsed-laser ablation is demonstrated. The films were formed on single-crystal sapphire and graphite substrates. A number of techniques were used to characterize the films: transmission and scanning electron microscopy, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry and x-ray diffraction.
