Suboxide Molecular Beam Epitaxy—A new Thin Film Growth PARADIM

user highlight
PARADIM’s in-house team worked with a collaborator at Penn State to develop a new variant of MBE that we call “suboxide MBE.” In contrast to conventional MBE where the molecular beams are elemental, in suboxide MBE the molecular beams are pre-oxidized. Achieving the desired suboxide beams relies on extensive thermodynamic calculations made for the entire periodic table, as shown in Figure 1. [1]
