In-situ growth and characterization of ultra-thin films for nanoelectronic applications

Epitaxial ultra-thin films play a central role in the development of advanced nanoelectronic applications. Recently, we have developed an unique scientific infrastructure for ultra-thin film research, including growth, implantation and analysis of materials in an ultra-high vacuum chamber.

Join this project, and you will learn:

  • Growth of epitaxial ultra-thin films using e-beam evaporation, sputtering and annealing.
  • Characterization of materials using in-situ 3D-MEIS and relevant ion beam analysis techniques.
  • Ex-situ characterization using electron microscopy (SEM and S/TEM).
