A research group for Carbon Nanostructures
|Heteroepitaxial Structures on Silicon||
The Surface Science Lab Heteroepitaxy Group's research effort is focused on the heteroepitaxial growth and characterization of thin film and nanoscale
|Oxides and Nitrides||
The Oxide & Nitride group of the Surface Science Lab is broadly focused, with interests in semiconductor, piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials.
Two ambient AFM systems and one UHV STM system
optical characterization techniques used to examine atomic bonding configurations and defects in thin film structures. Capabilities: Micro, Macro, Low temp. and UV
Photoelectron emission microscopy of surfaces using the Duke FEL for UV excitation. A one of a kind facility with unmatched capabilities to explore dynamical processes on surfaces
The laboratory is constructed around a 42 ft linear sample transfer mechanism that connects 11 UHV systems used for surface preparation, film growth and surface analysis.
