    We here present resisitivity and magnetoresistance measurements of two granular (CoFeB) -- SiO[SUB2] amorphous thin films, with a different amount of metallic content. The films were deposited onto substrates sitting on a rotating cylinder. This induces anisotropy in the film plane, which is...

    SiCl4-based reactive ion etching (RIE) is used to etch MgxZn1-xO (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.3) films grown on r-plane sapphire substrates. The RIE etch rates are investigated as a function of Mg composition, RIE power, and chamber pressure. SiO2 is used as the etching mask to achieve a good etching...
