Surface processes during growth of boron nitride


This work was in collaboration with

Andrew Gellman and Charmaine Chan (of the Department of Chemical Engineering)

and also

Ryan Desrosiers (of Electrical and Computer Engineering)

In this work, we used surface science techniques to investigate the growth of boron nitride on substrates thought to be particularly favorable for the formation of the desirable cubic phase. A number of publications below document our work on the lattice-matched Ni(100) substrate. We have also studied the reactions on AlN grown by MOCVD.
