Volmer-Weber Growth of Nanoscale Self-Assembled Quantum Dots

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Our research has focused on the fundamental understanding of the physical mechanisms and experimental methodologies to probe various growth conditions, their effects on density, size uniformity, and spatial organization of self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs). Theoretical models and numerical simulations have been developed to understand the nonlinear dynamics of surface pattern evolution and self assembly processes. Fabrication processes of semiconductor and metal SAQDs on high-k dielectrics have been developed, which have enabled the technology development of high-speed, low-power nonvolatile memory devices for nanoelectronics applications. Over the four years of the project, six graduate students have been trained in this research project, ... continued below

Over the four years of the project, six graduate students have been trained in this research project, and four of them have graduated with PhD degrees. Our research has been reported in 11 journal articles. Both PIs and their students have given numerous presentations at national/international conferences as well as invited seminars. A list of publications and presentations is attached to the end of this report.
