This proposal is for the acquisition of a system of epitaxial growth (molecular beam epitaxy) for use on group III-V semiconductors diluted with magnetic materials for applications in basic studies and studies involving nanophotonics. This epitaxial growth system will be installed at the USP Institute of Physics at São Carlos. The Nanostructured Semiconductors Research Group, whose members have more than 15 years of experience in the area, will be the responsible for the management, operation, and maintenance of the system. With the installation of this epitaxial growth system, the Institute will come to act as a hub for the growth of samples based on compounds and group III-V heterostructures, diluted or not with magnetic materials. Although there are currently four epitaxial growth systems installed in universities and research institutes within the State of São Paulo, none are equipped to promote the growth of group III-V semiconductor films diluted with magnetic materials. The creation of this hub for sample growth will be of major importance to the various researchers and groups that develop research based on these materials in the State of São Paulo. (AU)
