|Abstract:||In this paper, it is reported on on fabrication of a new material, the so-called Aero-Ga2O3 or Aerogallox, that represents an ultra-porous and ultra-lightweight three-dimensional architecture made from interconnected microtubes of gallium oxide with nanometer thin walls. The material is fabricated using epitaxial growth of an ultrathin layer of gallium nitride on zinc oxide microtetrapods followed by decomposition of sacrificial ZnO and oxidation of GaN which, according to the results of XRD and XPS characterizations, is transformed gradually in β-Ga2O3 with almost stoichiometric composition. The investigations show that the developed ultra-porous Aerogallox exhibits extremely low reflectivity and high transmissivity in an ultrabroadband electromagnetic spectrum ranging from X band (8-12 GHz) to several terahertz which opens possibilities for quite new applications of gallium oxide, previously not anticipated.|
