Paper Abstract

We present the temporal behavior of intensity oscillations in reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED) during molecular beam epitaxial (MBE) growth of GaAs and A1GaAs on (1 1 1)B GaAs substrates. The RHEED intensity oscillations were examined as a function of growth parameters in order to provide the insight into the dynamic characteristics and to identify the optimal condition for the two-dimensional layer-by-layer growth. The most intense RHEED oscillation was found to occur within a very narrow temperature range which seems to optimize the surface migration kinetics of the arriving group III elements and the molecular dissodiative reaction of the group V elements. The appearance of an initial transient of the intensity upon commencement of the growth and its implications are described.
