Microstructural characterisation of epitaxial rare earth metal based films

Abstract:

Epitaxial rare earth films and superlattices grown by molecular beam epitaxy, MBE, can be designed to investigate theoretical predictions of the magnetic and electronic properties of the metals. These investigations ideally require smooth epitaxial layers with atomically flat interfaces and therefore the microstructure of selected epitaxial rare earth systems has been characterised by a combination of techniques. These systems were grown on a (110) niobium ∥ (11̅20) sapphire substrate. Bec...
