Epitaxy Laboratory

Molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) is used for fabrication of epitaxially grown Nitride materials for optical, electronic and magnetic applications as well as for basic research.

The laboratory is equipped for development and supply of optically active and magnetic materials on substrates up to 4 inch diameter. State of the art in-situ characterization tools provide high reliability and reproducibility of sample properties.

A wide range of in-situ and ex-situ characterization tools are available. A range of analyzes can be performed in the analysis chamber connected to the MBEs by UHV transfer. Analysis can be done after growth or on any externally introduced sample.

  • Development of new materials and growth processes, delivery of various layers or heterostructures for science and industry.
  • Production of epitaxial nitride layers by MBE and MOCVD methods, for optoelectronic and electronic applications, magnetic applications and basic research
  • Production and development of optically active and magnetic materials on substrates up to 4 inches.
  • XPS with a resolution of up to 0.85 eV or intensities of up to 25 M counts/s.
  • Monochromated XPS with a resolution of up to 0.6 eV or intensities of up to 1.2 M counts/s.
  • Small-spot XPS with the smallest analysis area better than 70 μm
    Fine focus ion source to etch holes with minimum sizes of 150 μm for depth resolved XPS measurements
  • Auger electron spectroscopy with a resolution of 0.5 at
  • Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) surface analysis
