French term or phrase: masque de croissance

My text is about a method for producing a single-crystalline layer for the fields of micro systems among others.

"Des techniques de croissance par épitaxie latérale (ELO) et MELO (Merged Epitaxial Lateral Overgrowth) assurent la croissance d'une couche mince sur un substrat germe, par l'intermédiaire d'ouvertures formées dans un masque de croissance isolant électrique.

Any ideas?
Thank you in advance.
