Paper Abstract

Semiconductor nanomembranes, single-crystal sheets as thin as ten nanometers, offer many opportunities for novel devices and new science. The most interesting involve epitaxy to introduce strain at both local and global levels. Coming into play are membrane thinness, access to both sides of a sheet, transferability, and enhanced compliancy. Advances in Group IV optoelectronics, thermoelectrics, and photonics may be achievable by combining epitaxy with Si and Ge nanomembranes. Nanoepitaxy allows formation of new strained materials, periodic strain lattices, and mix and match membranes with hybrid orientations or compositions.
