Project description

“Growth of Complex Oxides” wishes to understand the growth of complex (or multi-component) oxides in detail by a full characterisation and modelling of the deposition process (reactive sputtering), in order to map all parameters influencing the layer growth process. Furthermore, the correlation between several selected film properties and the stoichiometry, microstructure and crystallographic alignment will be examined.
