Paper Abstract

Variations in the lattice constant of Ge film were determined by RHEED in the course of the MBE film growth on the silicon surface. Oscillations of the in-plane atomic cell constant were observed for the Ge film growing according to the 2D mechanism. Variations in the two-dimensional lattice constant at the stage of 2D growth are caused by elastic deformation of edges of two-dimensional islands. It was shown that the germanium film growth on silica, unlike the growth on the pure silicon surface, proceeds without formation of the wetting layer.
