QMI Researchers Have Successfully Grown a Parent Compound in a "Quantum Sandwich"

A group of researchers at Stewart Blusson QMI at the University of British Columbia have successfully grown the parent compound of a high superconducting transition temperature material (perovskite bismuthate). Strontium bismuth oxide (SrBiO3) was grown in a thin film form on a strontium titanate substrate using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). Experimental results were recently reported in Physical Review Materials. Read more.
