Oxide Film Growth - Molecular Beam Epitaxy and Pulsed Laser Deposition Face-off for Supremacy
This tutorial at this year's Fall MRS Meeting will cover the fundamentals of how epitaxial interfaces in complex oxides are fabricated, specifically addressing the strengths and weaknesses of pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). The tutorial is suitable for scientists interested in an introduction to modern oxide film growth, but also provides direct comparisons from both the MBE and PLD communities regarding the strengths of each technique.
