Abstract

There is a growing interest in producing 3D device structures. Presently attempts are made to do this by growing epi-layers on substrates using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). These processes cause a variety of fabrication problems; e.g., slow multi-step processes, interfacial impurity and defect problems, lack of epitaxial growth, diffusion problems during high temperature treatment etc.
