  1. 1. Molecular Doping of Epigraphene for Device Applications

    Author : Hans He; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Molecular Doping; Graphene; epitaxial graphene; THz; Metrology; Hall Effect;

    Abstract : Epitaxial graphene grown on silicon carbide, or epigraphene, offers in principle a suitable platform for electronic applications of graphene which require scalable, reproducible, and high-quality material. However, one of the main drawbacks of epigraphene lies in the difficulty in controlling its carrier density, which hinders its usefulness in future applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Epitaxy, analysis and application of semi-insulating III-V materials

    Author : David Söderström; KTH; []
    Keywords : InP; GaInP; semi-insulating materials; iron doping; ruthenium doping; HVPE; diffusion; deep levels; capture cross sections; resistivity analysis; buried heterostructure laser;

    Abstract : Semi-insulating (SI) III-V materials can provide electricalisolation for integration and capacitance minimisation for highspeed operation. Compared to the polyimides, these can offerbetter thermal conduction. Ever since the fabrication of thefirst SI III-V materials, transition metals have been utilisedas deep impurities to impart SI properties. READ MORE
