A TECHNIQUE FOR PREPARING ELECTRON TRANSPARENT SUBSTRATES OF ALKALI HALIDES
Department of Physics, Islamia University, Bahawalpur, Pakistan.
Abstract: A new technique of preparing alkali halides electron transparent substrates has been developed. The substrate crystals are formed inside the holes of a carbon support film, so that each crystal has two free faces for deposition and study. The mechanism of formation of transparent crystals and the important factors involved have been discussed.
Keywords: Alkali halides, crystal growth, deposition, electron transparent substrates, epitaxial films.
