Structure and Morphology of Silicon-Germanium Thin Films
07 Feb 2015 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
This presentation describes the growth of (Si,Ge & SiGe) thin films on Si and Ge (001) and (111) substrates by ultrahigh vacuum chemical vapor deposition (UHVCVD). Thin films were...

This presentation describes the structural and magnetic properties, including domain structures, in magnetron-sputtered Co-25% Cr thin films.
Structure and Properties of Carbon and Boron Nitride Nanotubes
10 Jan 2014 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
This presentation describes structure and mechanical property determinations on carbon and boron nitride (sp2-bonded) nanotubes , as deduced by transmission electron microscopy.
Structure and Morphology of Silicon Germanium Thin Films
30 Dec 2013 | Papers | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
Single layer silicon and germanium films as well as nominally 50-50 silicon-germanium alloys were deposited on single crystal silicon and germanium (001) and (111) substrates by ultrahigh vacuum...
Corrosion Mechanisms in Magnetic Recording Media
29 Jul 2013 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
This presentation describes the corrosion process in longitudinal and perpendicular recording media, based upon electron and scanning probe microscopic analysis.
Texture-Induced hcp c-axis Alignment in Longitudinal Media
15 Jul 2013 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
This presentation discusses the development and measurement of c-axis text in longitudinal hard disk media.
On the Two to Three Dimensional Growth Transition in Strained Silicon Germanium Thin Films
02 Feb 2012 | Papers | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
Utilizing a model adapted from classical nucleation theory , we calculate a "critical thickness" for island formation, taking into account the surface
energies of the deposit and the substrate...
Boron Nitride Nanotube Growth Mode
27 Jan 2012 | Papers | Contributor(s): Brian Demczyk
This writeup details the growth details of arc-synthesized boron nitride nanotubes, incorporating the results of atomic resolution transmission electron microscopy, image simulation and image exit...
