The blue book ...
My colleague Richard Thomson was pleased to see a well thumbed copy of "The Technology and Physics of Molecular Beam Epitaxy" edited by Evan Parker in a customer's office recently. The Editor can modestly admit to having contributed two chapters to this "classic" and other colleagues in RTA (Jeff Harris and David Williams) also made contributions. Good things clearly go in twos, and this particular customer has joined the growing number of groups that have two BandiT systems for substrate temperature monitoring.
