Using an oblique-incidence optical reflectivity difference technique, we investigated kinetic processes in SrTiO3 homoepitaxy on SrTiO3(001) under pulsed-laser deposition conditions. Depending upon growth temperature and oxygen ambient pressure, we found that the oxidation of an as-grown SrTiO3 monolayer may take a much longer time to complete than the recrystallization of the monolayer. The oxidation reaction was found to be characterized by an effective activation energy barrier of 1.35 eV and a large preexponential factor.
