First–year graduate student Ian Gibbs–Hall was selected on 30 April 2014 to receive a 2014 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship from the Department of Defense (DoD). Ian was selected from over 3,000 applicants to receive the fellowship which covers fees and stipend for three years. Congratulations Ian!
Second–year graduate student Xisen Hou was selected on 26 June 2014 to receive the prestigious Ryan Fellowship. This fellowship is made possible through the donations of Patrick G. and Shirley W.
High-quality and defect-free GaAs were successfully grown via molecular beam epitaxy on silicon dioxide patterned Si(111) substrates by a two-step growth technique. Compared with the one-step approach, the two-step growth scheme has been found to be a better pathway to obtain a superior-quality GaAs on Si.
The authors report the molecular beam epitaxial growth and the structural and optical characterizations of self-assembled/catalyst-free GaAs nanodisks on SiO2 masked Si(100) patterned substrates. Pure zincblende GaAs nanodisks with precise positioning and low defect density are demonstrated by selective area epitaxy.
