Precise defect control in complex oxides thin epitaxial films
The Scientific Service Group Technology develops advanced epitaxial growth technologies for depositing complex compounds with atomic-layer precision. Using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) systems and a unique oxide molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system we synthesize thin films, multilayers and superlattices of different complex oxides including cuprates, manganates, nickelates, cobaltates, ruthenates. The combination of both methods enables the accurate fabrication and in-depth exploration of new heterostructure systems with defect control at the atomic level. In this report we summerize our last achievements reported in [1,2].
