Hot Article: High quality, without phase separation – progress in a-plane MgZnO epilayer growth

Resonant Rutherford backscattering spectrometry along with with ion channeling revealed a uniform growth in both composition and atomic order.

Andrés Redondo-Cubero and colleagues detail the growth of high-quality thick a-plane MgZnO epilayers that can be grown without phase-separation but that contain greater than 50% Mg. The team also constructed Au-MgZnO photodiodes to test if the layers could be used in optoelectronic devices, giving positive results.
