Materials Fundamentals of Molecular Beam Epitaxy

Front Cover
Academic Press, Dec 2, 2012 - Technology & Engineering - 301 pages
The technology of crystal growth has advanced enormously during the past two decades. Among, these advances, the development and refinement of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) has been among the msot important. Crystals grown by MBE are more precisely controlled than those grown by any other method, and today they form the basis for the most advanced device structures in solid-state physics, electronics, and optoelectronics. As an example, Figure 0.1 shows a vertical-cavity surface emitting laser structure grown by MBE.

* Provides comprehensive treatment of the basic materials and surface science principles that apply to molecular beam epitaxy
* Thorough enough to benefit molecular beam epitaxy researchers
* Broad enough to benefit materials, surface, and device researchers
* Referenes articles at the forefront of modern research as well as those of historical interest
