This paper documents the growth of single crystal Ti:sapphire thin films, typically 10µm thick, on undoped sapphire substrates using Pulsed Laser Deposition from a Ti:sapphire single crystal target with a doping level of 0.1 % wt Ti2O3. These thin films are shown to have very high crystal quality using Ion Beam Channelling and X-Ray Diffraction Techniques. The degree of titanium incorporation into the films is investigated using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry and Particle Induced X-ray Emission. These techniques show that levels of up to 0.08% wt Ti2O3 are present in the deposited layers.
