Paper Abstract

Both Shockley and Frank partial dislocations originating at the ZnSxSe1-x/GaAs interface were observed with defect densities in the range less than 5 X 104/cm2 to approximately 1 X 108/cm2 for samples grown under different conditions. These faulted defects act as heterogeneous nucleation sites for the generation of 60 degree(s) misfit dislocations. A very low density of Shockley partial dislocations was obtained in ZnSxSe1-x films grown by the layer-by-layer mode on GaAs substrates. Also, the density of Frank partial dislocations was decreased by exposing the As- stabilized GaAs surface to Zn for 1-2 minutes prior to the growth of the ZnSxSe1-x epilayers. These samples contained a defect density lower than 5 X 104/cm2. A Ga2Se3 compound existing at the ZnSxSe1-x/GaAs interface is thought to be the source of the Frank partial dislocations.
