Paper Abstract

Transition metal aluminides and gallides and rare earth monopnictides have been grown as buried conducting layers in 111-v compound semiconductor heterostructures. These metallic and semi-metallic compounds have the CsC1 and NaC1 structures, respectively. The criteria for achieving (100) oriented epitaxial growth on (100)111-V semiconductor surfaces are different for each class of material. The methods used to achieve 111-V/metal/Ill-V heteroepitaxial structures are described. The different approaches needed for the aluminides or gallides and the monopnictides form the basis for a comparative study.
