Hot off the press: new paper in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces!

The paper “Micro/Nanostructure Engineering of Epitaxial Piezoelectric alpha-quartz Thin Films on Silicon” has been recently published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.

Congratulations to Martí Gich and former N&N Group member Qianzhe Zhang, authors of this work!

This study has been carried out in collaboration with NanoChemLab from Montpellier, France.
