New Indentation Method Using Scanning Probe Microscope
Invention Summary:Accurate indentation measurement is fundamental to atomic force microscope (AFM)-based material property characterization as the force applied and the indentation generated are the two most important physical variables that must be measured in the characterization process. Large measurement errors occur when the measurement freque...

Self-gettering Differential Pump for Oxide Molecular Beam Epitaxy
Invention Summary:Flux instability of the evaporation sources is one of the biggest problems in the multi-elemental oxide Molecular Beam Epitaxy techniques. Source oxidation of easily oxidizing elements such as Ca, Sr, Ba, and Ti in an oxidizing ambient leads to their flux instability. Such unstable flux rate is detrimental to precise control of fi...
