Paper Abstract

Thin (Hg,Cd)Te and CdTe films have been grown on GaAs (100) substrates respectively by organometallic vapor phase epitaxy and close-spaced vapor transport method. Electron microscopic observations have been carried out in order to characterize the crystallographic quality of the epitaxial layers. In the case of (100) epitaxial orientation, high resolution lattice images have revealed the presence of misfit dislocations, essentially Lomer dislocations, exactly located in the plane of the interface. When the growth of the epitaxial layer of CdTe has taken place in the <111> direction, the most visible defects are twins and microtwins present in the film near the interface.
