Paper Abstract

Strain parameters of thin films are needed to numerically simulate the optical gain of light amplification for semiconductor devices. We report a complete quantitative treatment of the stress-strain relations for several common (h,h,k) orientations. We find that earlier reports that attributed the presence of tensile elastic strain to both thermal and lattice-mismatches gave strain estimates that were too low. Using our calculations, we present a model to explain the observed shifts in excitonic recombination energies that have been reported by many groups to date.
