Surface engineering of Ga2O3 for nanoelectronic devices

Ga2O3 is an emerging wide-bandgap semiconducting material that has received enormous attention in recent years due to its potential application in power devices, UV detectors and military applications that are unattainable by conventional semiconductors such as silicon.The operation and performance of these type of electronic devices rely critically on the surface quality and properties of the semiconducting materials. However, the surface atomic structures and electronic structures of Ga2O3 single crystals are not yet fully understood.The principal aim of this project …

Diamond optoelectronic devices: switching diamond by light

Beyond its allure as a precious gemstone, diamond is regarded as an excellent material for electronic and optical applications, owing to a range of extraordinary material properties. Although diamond is highly insulating in its bulk, its surface, once terminated by hydrogen, can develop an intriguing p-type surface conductivity which can be rationally tailored by interfacing diamond with other materials. The two-dimensional hole gas (2DHG) on diamond surface, which supports the surface conductivity, also exhibits many interesting quantum properties that can …
