Single Crystal Substrates
Most of microelectronic and optoelectronic devices are based on application of single crystal substrates on which thin films and structures with special properties are created using methods of epitaxial groth, ion implantation etc.
Such structures have versatile applications including:
- light emitting structures;
- magnetooptic films;
- high temperature superconductors;
- optical waveguides;
- optical radiation receivers;
- acoustoelectronic devices;
- THz band generators/receivers;
- photolithographic systems;
