Paper Abstract

The investigations of photo luminescence spectra of the electrochemically produced porous GaAs layers, excited by continuous Ar laser radiation, were carried out. The chemical composition of the anodized p- and n-GaAs was analyzed by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The GaAs surface morphology was examined by high-resolution transmission-electron microscopy and surface structure was investigated by electronograph EMR100 and Atomic Force Microscopy. It is established that increasing a duration and current density of etching changes the porosity of bulk GaAs and both Galium and arsenic oxides are formed on the sample surface Photo luminescence spectra of investigated porous surface consist of 'IR' and 'green' spectral structures. The 'IR' structure exhibits redshifts of its peak energies, and 'green' structure intensity is dependent on etching conditions. A possible reason of origin and changes in those spectra is discussed.
