Cluster de croissance d'oxydes fonctionnels composé de 2 bâtis d'ablation laser pulsé

Diogo Vaz (right) transfers a sample for X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis. This cluster consists of 2 pulsed laser ablation (PLD - pulsed laser deposition) assemblies, a cathode sputtering assembly and an XPS system for performing in-situ analyses. In PLD, a pulsed laser ablates a target consisting of material that the research scientists wish to deposit in thin layers. The atoms contained in the plasma thus created are deposited on a substrate and form a thin layer.
