Chris Palmstrøm Research Group
General research interests of our group are on the heteroepitaxial growth of novel materials and structures to form the basis for making new electronic, optoelectronic, magnetic and micromechanical devices. Critical to the advancement of materials and structures is the fundamental understanding of growth. A key to developing structures with novel properties is the ability to control, at the atomic level, the interface structure and chemistry. Our program has a strong emphasis on heteroepitaxial growth of dissimilar materials. These include materials with different crystal structure, bonding, electronic, optical and magnetic properties.
