Description

Epitaxial Growth, Part A is a compilation of review articles that describe various aspects of the growth of single-crystal films on single-crystal substrates.

The collection contains topics on the historical development of epitaxy, the nucleation of thin films, the structure of the interface between film and substrate, and the generation of defects during film growth. The text also provides descriptions of the methods used to prepare and examine thin films and a list of the overgrowth-substrate combinations studied.

Mineralogists, materials engineers and scientists, and physicists will find this book a great source of insight.
