Crystal Growth Research Lines


  • Study of the 3C- to 6H-SiC polytypic transition at high temperature using high resolution X-ray diffuse scattering.
  • High resolution microscopic analysis of III-Nitrides nanostructures (quantum wells and dots).
  • Development of birefringence microscopy as a qualitative and quantitative tool to study dislocations in WBG semiconductors.
