Paper Abstract

We report on InGaiAs/GaAs single quantum wells grown at low substrate temperatures in a wide range of indium compositions (x) and well thicknesses. Compared with ordinary growth conditions the transition between pseudomorphic and relaxed regions (in the epilayer thickness versus x plane) occurred at higher indium compositions when the growth temperature was lowered. An increase in critical thicknesses for pseudomorphic growth by at least a factor of seven for alloy compositions with less than 40 indium was observed. This was determined by low temperature photoluminescence spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy measurements. Results of studies on the thermal stability of these quantum wells are also presented.
