NAtuRal instability of semiConductors thIn SOlid films for sensing and photonic applications

Project description

Thin-film instabilities aid design of flexible photonic and sensing devices

Solid-state dewetting describes the process where a thin film starts to degenerate into separated droplets when heated at a temperature well below the melting point. The EU-funded NARCISO project plans to exploit the thin-film instabilities that are caused by solid-state dewetting (in silicon and germanium) to form complex patterns and nano-architectures. The patterns will be used as epitaxial platforms for growing light-emitting III-V compounds or as hard-masters for imprinting metal oxides. The architectures envisaged include atomically smooth single-crystalline structures and disordered hyperuniform systems. The structures will be optimised for use in photonic or sensing devices.
