Abstract:

The effect of reduced growth area on the lattice mismatch accommodation of InxGa1-xAsGaAs and GaAsSi grown by molecular beam epitaxy MBE has been studied with cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy XTEMand cathodoluminescence CL. Results indicate that the use of step- composition grading and linear-composition grading are particularly effective when combined with reduced growth areas and InxGa1-xAs compositions up to x 0. 25. Blanket areas with the same composition grading techniques exhibited randomly distributed threading dislocation-free regions approximately 30 microns in diameter, which were bounded by high-density dislocation pile-ups.
