Thin Film Growth Facility

The PARADIM Thin Film Growth Facility is located at Cornell University. Together with the bulk crystal film growth facilities at Johns Hopkins, it provides unprecedented capabilities for discovery of new materials and interfaces.The PARADIM Thin Film Growth Facility at Cornell provides unprecedented capability for the growth and characterization of thin films and interfaces of inorganic materials. The signature tool is an integrated instrument consisting of an oxide MBE system and an ARPES system sharing a common ultrahigh vacuum connection. The (MO)MBE system has eleven sources that can be used simultaneously and changed/refilled without breaking growth chamber vacuum. Materials can be selected from any of the sixty-two different elements shown in color on the periodic table to the right. This gives PARADIM users unprecedented flexibility in exploring new materials by design.
