Abstract:

Stoichiometry and atomic concentration distributions for MBE grown systems of InAs quantum dots buried in a Si matrix has been studied using Rutherford Backscattering spectroscopy and Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy depth profiling. We have found a significant excess of As atoms which under elevated temperatures diffuse into the Si matrix despite of a larger ionic radius. This may affect the band alignment on the QD, matrix interface. Our findings suggest improvements office MBE growth process for InAsSi and similar systems.
