GaAs atom layer crystal growth video

morreale Monday 22 of October, 2018
Researchers have captured the layer-by-layer growth of a GaAs nanocrystal on video using an electron microscope. The nanocrystal grows under a droplet of liquid gold. A summary of the research and video are reported at Focus: Video—Growing a Crystal One Atomic Layer at a Time, and the paper Atomic Step Flow on a Nanofacet can be found at the APS website.
