Description: This animation enables you to explore the way in which perfect thin crystalline layers are deposited epitaxially (i.e. in the same crystal orientation) on semiconductor substrates. This is the way many electronic and opto-electronic devices are now fabricated using techniques such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). From TLP: Epitaxial Growth
Keywords: epitaxy • epitaxial deposition • epitaxial growth • MBE • molecular beam • thin film • film growth • Stranski-Krastanov
