2DCC-MIP Tools

Thin Films

The 2DCC Thin Films Facility is directed at the advancing the science of 2D chalcogenide thin film synthesis. Custom molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) deposition tools, with in situ and real-time characterization, enable fundamental studies of epitaxy, growth and the properties of pristine 2D films.

Materials Transfer and Processing

The 2DCC Inert Atmosphere Cluster Tool enables the fabrication and characterization of air-sensitive van der Waals heterostructures and devices. It consists of three major pieces of instrumentation housed in two conjoined, argon gas-filled gloveboxes.

Bulk Crystal Growth

The 2DCC Bulk Growth Facility is producing high quality single crystal samples and is exploring new materials compositions, including doping of intrinsic single crystals.

Theory and Simulation

Core and affiliate faculty of the 2DCC can provide expertise in a wide range of physio-chemical aspects of two-dimensional materials growth, characterization, and properties. These efforts can be predictive – preceding associated experimental efforts, or interpretive – assisting in the understanding of existing experimental efforts.
