Bachelor thesis: Growth of perovskite transition metal oxides by high oxygen pressure sputtering

Advertising institute: JCNS-2 - Scattering Methods
Reference number: D011/2013, Physics

We offer a bachelor thesis in which crystalline thin films of Perovskite transition metal oxides will be grown by an high oxygen pressure sputtering system and subsequently structurally characterized.
Perovskite oxides exhibit a large variety of properties. The combination of those materials leads to a tremendous potential to generate artificial materials with new behaviors. The lattice constants of those Perovskite oxide heterostructures should be characterized by x-ray reflectometry (XRR) and x-ray diffraction (XRD) in response to different growth conditions. Additionally the surface quality should be characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM).
