    Continuous Reflectivity Measurements for Growth Rate and Emissivity-Corrected Pyrometry in MBE Systems Obtaining continuous reflectivity measurements in MBE systems is challenging due to the variation in the reflectivity signals caused by substrate wobble. These variations are exacerbated by the relatively long substrate-to-detector distances in MBE systems (typically greater than 24”) compared to MOCVD systems (typically […]
