Abstract:

The task objective is to develop crystal growth techniques utilizing substrate-confined liquids. Crystal are to be grown as arrays of single crystals of materials relevant to photodetection. The basic approach is experimental and utilizes vacuum evaporation, chemical vapor deposition, and related techniques as well as optical, SEM and x-ray instrumentation. The main result obtained is that arrays of single crystals can be grown with a basal plane oriented parallel to the substrate for the materials In, Ge, InSb, in order of decreasing perfection.
