Thickness-dependent measurements of lithium fluoride thin films grown on c-plane sapphire substrates allow the separation of bulk and interface conductions. The normalized conductance decreases linearly with decreasing LiF layer thickness with a negative extrapolated intercept. It indicates depletion of lithium ion vacancies as majority charge carriers and hence a negative space-charge potential. A generalized Mott–Schottky approach within the model of heterogeneous doping fully explains the entire boundary defect chemistry.
