Growth of Ti3SiC2 single crystals from high temperature solution.
Raman scattering study for a complete identification of the different phonon modes.
The Ti3SiC2 nanolamellar structure gives rise to unprecedented specific morphological features. A qualitative description of 2D instabilities during the growth has been carried out.
Ti3SiC2 surface morphology of a highly unstable region, as measured by dynamic AFM measurements. (Physical Review B, 2011)
