Paper Abstract

Molecular beam epitaxy has been used to grow both GaAs, ,Sb films lattice-matched to InP and GaAsi_ Sb /GaAs strained layer superlattices oh.6aArgubstrates. Films grown on InP substrates are ofa composition inside the well-known solid-phase miscibility gap for this alloy. Because these films are metastable, they exhibit an unusual microstructure which includes both ordering and clustering effects. Nevertheless, we have obtained low-temperature photoluminescence linewidths of under 8 meV. This represents the best linewidth for this material reported to date. Correlations between film microstructure and the optical quality of these alloys have been observed. Strained layer GaAsi_xSb /GaAs superlattices grown on GaAs substrates have been characterized by x-ray di3i'fraction, photoluminescence, optical absorption, and photoreflectance. Structural parameters as determined by x-ray diffraction have been used in an envelope function superlattice band structure model to estimate the band offsets and indicate that the superlattices are Type II, with a large valence band discontinuity.
