Paper Abstract

Multiple quantum well AI,Ga1-xAs/GaAs structures grown by molecular beam epitaxy were studied in order to determine the growth conditions that optimize luminescent response. Low temperature photolumines-cence results indicate that a growth temperature of 700°C is optimum. The quality of the interfaces between the AlxGa1-xAs and GaAs layers was assessed by means of modulation doped structures. It was found that the interfacial quality is optimized at a growth temperature of 700°C. Finally, room temperature continuous wave photopumped laser operation at a wavelength of A= 7270 A is demonstrated in these structures.
