Title: Combinatorial in situ photoelectron spectroscopy investigation of Sb2Se3/ZnS heterointerfaces

Abstract

Combinatorial techniques can be utilized to accelerate in situ interface studies. This is demonstrated by investigating the prototypical Sb2Se3/ZnS heterojunction. Film thickness gradients on the substrate are used to minimize the required number of depositions and transfers. As a result, other synthesis parameters such as the substrate temperature or film composition can be systematically covaried with thickness to cover several individual interface experiments on one substrate.
