Electron beam induced etching and deposition

Project Member(s): Ford, M., Arnold, M., Lobo, C.

Funding or Partner Organisation: National Computational Infrastructure National Facility (National Computational Infrastructure)

Start year: 2015

Summary: Semiconductors (and other important device materials) are commonly grown by chemical reaction o removes the desired material from the surface. An electron beam focused onto the surface can dissoc control the growth process. If an electron microscope is used structures can be grown with extreme s simulate electron-beam induced deposition and etching using a combination of continuum rate equa the intended outcomes of understanding the underlying microscopic mechanisms and ultimately to o complementary experimental work.
