    InAs nanowires have been grown without the use of Au or other metal particles as catalyst by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy. The nanowires growth is initiated by a thin layer of SiOx. The wires exhibit a non-tapered shape with a hexagonal cross section. In addition to InAs also InAs1-xPx...

    A model of the annealing-induced crystallization of amorphous clusters in a solid matrix is proposed. The calculated dependence of the crystallized phase fraction on the annealing temperature agrees with the available experimental data.

    Extensive data on the viscosity, covering 15 orders of magnitude, and crystal growth rate, covering seven orders of magnitude, of liquid diopside (CaO·MgO·2SiO2) were collected in a wide range of undercoolings from 1.10Tg to 0.99Tm (Tg is the glass transition temperature and Tm the melting...

    The equilibrium crystal shape (ECS) of GaAs homoepitaxially grown on a nanoscale SiO2-patterned (001) plane by molecular beam epitaxy is investigated. A GaAs epilayer selectively grown on a nanoscale area bounded by a circular SiO2 mask undergoes faceting, resulting in a pyramidal shape with...

    Ge nanocrystal growth in amorphous silicon oxide film was studied using the transmission electron microscopy and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy techniques. The as-sputtered sample contained mainly GeO[sub 2] and Ge suboxides. GeO[sub 2] and/or suboxides dissociate when rapid thermal annealed...

    The electron mean free path (lgr) is 'locally' evaluated by scanning capacitance spectroscopy on graphene obtained with different preparation methods and on different substrates, i.e., graphene exfoliated from highly oriented pyrolitic graphite (HOPG) and deposited (DG) on 4H-SiC(0001) and on...

    Isolated, self assembled ZnO nanoparticles are grown in two steps: by the electron beam evaporation of Zn on oxidised silicon wafers, during which isolated Zn nanodots are grown, and a subsequent annealing in oxygen that results in the desired ZnO nanodots. Low temperature PL measurements of the...

    In this work we perform a systematic study of the dissolution of a dislocation loop layer under the influence of inert SiO2/Si and nitrogen-rich SiO2/Si interfaces. The composition of the dislocation loop layer was just after its formation 10%–20% Frank dislocation loops and...

    180 nm SiO2 layers on Si (100) were implanted with Sn ions producing a profile with a peak concentration of 3 at. % at the middle of the oxide. After high temperature (900–1100 °C) annealing, an array of β-Sn islands epitaxially attached to the Si was observed at the SiO2/Si(100)...
