Going further

Most of the literature relating to epitaxy has arisen in the context of semiconducting or oxide systems. There are currently good articles on Wikipedia which can be found if you search for the following key words:

More on the material covered in this TLP:

  • Stranski-Krastanov growth
  • Epitaxy
  • Molecular beam epitaxy ( don't search for MBE)

For some ideas on why we grow epitaxial thin films:

  • Quantum well
  • Laser diode

And for some background on other approaches to growth, search for:

  • Thin film solar cell
