Dr. Gennady Logvenov at the Max Planck Institute employed the DCA R450 dual oxide MBE system to synthesize more than 100 epitaxial superlattices, in which single LaO layers in the La2CuO4 structure were substituted by SrO layers with the desired periodicity. The study represents a successful example of two-dimensional doping of superconducting oxide systems and demonstrates its power in this field. Read more
The Paul-Drude-Institute in Berlin employed the DCA P600 plasma-assisted MBE system to develop a novel technique for integrating strain-free GaN crystals on micrometer-sized patterned Si(0 0 1) substrates. The good optical properties together with the faceted morphology of the GaN crystals could be beneficial for the integration of space filling, multidirectional III−N/Si(0 0 1) light-emitting diodes.
