Description

This image is a snapshot of the simulations of the epitaxial growth of gallium oxide single crystals. The structure of the gallium oxide surface is calculated from first-principles density functional theory. We use first-principles calculations to provide a microscopic view of the epitaxial growth of gallium oxide, aiming at a higher growth rate and better crystal quality.
