Paper Abstract

The surface stoichiometry of GaAs substrates influences considerably the initial stages of heteroepitaxy of II-VI compounds on (001)GaAs by molecular beam epitaxy. The growth mechanism of ZnSe has been investigated using a RHEED observation system, with which the intensity and half width of diffraction spots are measured. The growth mechanism of ZnSe on thermally cleaned substrates is the Stranski-Krastanov mode, while that on As-stabilized GaAs substrates is varied from the Stranski-Krastanov mode to the two-dimensional layer by layer growth mode with growth conditions of ZnSe. For Se rich conditions, which is characterized by a (2x1) reconstructed surface, the two-dimensional growth mode dominates, while for Zn-rich growth conditions, which is characterized by a c(2x2) reconstructed surface, the Stranski-Krastanov mode dominates.
