The Novel Oxide MBE group, lead by Dr. Ingle, is located in the AMPEL Building (Room 245), and is a part of the Quantum Materials Laboratory recently created at UBC.
This group concentrates on the growth of novel epitaxial oxides in ultra-thin film form. The primary goal of this work is to learn how to use defects -- both point defects and extended defects such as surface and interfaces -- to modify the electronic structure of highly correlated oxides. To this end we study the physical structure using RHEED, LEED, x-ray diffraction, and STM (in collaboration with J. Barth) as well as the electronic strucutre via high-resolution ARPES (in collaboration with A. Damascelli). This experimental work is done in combination with many-body theoretical modeling provided by I. Elfimov and G. Sawatzky
