We are studying in both experimentally and numerically. You may found more information about our facilities below.

Experimental Studies

Chemical Vapor Deposition System

We have an Ultrasonic Spray Chemical Vapor Deposition with Remote Spark Plasma Generator for Ozone generation for growth of ZnO, MgZnO and their heterostructures.

In additional to our ZnO system, we have a small Graphene CVD system.

Electrical Characterization Laboratory

Most of the research activities in the wide band gap (WBG) materials and HEMT devices are carried out in this laboratory where experimental facilities exists to investigate electrical properties of semiconductors between 77K and 300K. The experimental sets include I/V, electrical transport, and hot electron (high voltage pulse measurements).

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) System

We have an AFM system for structural investigations. Our compact, tabletop AFM system has all the important features and benefits expected from a light lever AFM and includes everything required for high-resolution scanning. It has a passive vibration prevention system.

Sample Sizes: Up to 1” X 1” X 3/4” Standard Scanning Modes: Vibrating(Tapping), Non Vibrating (Contact), Phase, LFM Scanners: 50 x 50 x 17 µm, 15 x 15 x 7 µm Video Optical Microscope: Zoom to 400X, 2 µm resolution Stage and EBox Size: Compact table top design, with passive vibration prevention cabin.
