    The deposition behavior of HfO2 by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on germanium has been investigated. HfO2 films can be deposited on Ge with equally good quality as compared to high-k growth on silicon. Surface preparation is very important: compared to an HF-last, NH3 pretreatments...

    Although silicon (Si) nanostructures exhibit size dependent light emission, which can be attributed to quantum confinement, the role of surface passivation is not fully understood. Si nanocrystals less than 6 nm in diameter are grown on SiO2 surfaces in an ultrahigh vacuum chamber using hot wire...

    We present a study of the effects of the ratio of hardness to Young’s modulus on the friction and wear behavior of layered composite coatings. Layered coating structures with the same surface coating but different interlayers were prepared by physical vapor deposition. We found that the...

    Surface-passivating properties of hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbide films (a-SiCx:H) deposited by plasma-enhanced chemical-vapor deposition on both p- and n-type crystalline silicon (c-Si) have been extensively studied by our research group in previous publications. We characterized surface...
