The first in situ observation of layered metastable heterostructure formation

Heterostructures, semiconductor structures composed of solid-state materials with different chemical properties, have found use in a variety of specialized applications where their unique characteristics are critical. The engineering of heterostructures is an important means in creating novel device concepts. In fact, it has already revolutionized the development of solar cells, transistors and even lasers. However, layering materials with vastly differing properties poses complex challenges.

To find out more about TEM and how scientists approach this problem, read the article I wrote on the DENSsolutions website.
