Yadano and Xavier assisted in the fabrication and characterization of MIS devices. They helped to use atomic layer deposition (ALD) and thermal evaporation to fabricate the device. They then determined the size of the devices using a microscope. Thicknesses and IV and CV data were then obtained to determine the dielectric constant of the devices.

Summer 2010

Marie and Penelope assisted in the growth of zinc oxide nanowires. Working in a cleanroom, they also helped prepare MOS devices by cleaning of silicon substrates and deposition of metal contacts. Metal contact size was then measured and CV data was obtained and analyzed.

Summer 2009

Kelley and Chelsea assisted in the growth of zinc oxide nanowires via a hydrothermal method using a microwave. They also took images of their samples using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
