Characterization of Aluminum Nitride Nanostructures by XANES and FTIR Spectroscopies with Synchrotron Radiation

, , , , , , , , , ,
We investigated nano-systems of AlN synthesized by DC arc-plasma-induced melting of aluminum in a nitrogen–argon ambient. Actually, the reaction of molten Al with N2 gas yields on a water-cooled surface a mixture of both nanowires [...]

Investigation of the Electronic Properties of the ZrO2 and HfO2 Thin Films by Scanning Probe Microscopy and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy

, , , , , ,
The advantages of the combined AFM/STM technique for investigating the dielectric properties of ultrathin MeOx layers with high spatial resolution is shown. Particularly, MO2/Si (M=Hf, Zr) interface evolution upon heat treatments is explored. It is [...]
