Jacob Pledger – 2016

Crystalline Channeling of MeV Ion Beams Research Advisor: Dr.Stephen Remillard Thin films of strontium titanate (SrTiO3) on single crystal magnesium oxide (MgO) substrate and strontium manganate (SrMnO3) also on single crystal MgO substrate are being considered for use in engineered superlattices. These superlattice structures exhibit unique properties which make them valuable in the semiconductor industry […]
