Paper Abstract

We report for the first time the growth of high quality Zn Te epilayers on silicon substrates by Metal Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE). ZnTe layers up to 7μm thick were grown on (001) silicon substrates at 420°C-450°C substrate temperatures. The layers were mirror shiny and smooth, devoid of growth features like layered or stepped structures. The x-ray double crystal diffraction showed that best ZnTe layers exhibited Full Width at Half Maximum (FWHM) of 110 arc seconds. Further optimization of the growth procedure will make this material very useful for the potential development of iow cost infrared focal plane arrays and other optoelectronic devices which use direct wide band gap ZnTe.
