Paper Abstract

Electron transport, optical and structure properties of the shallow pseudomorphic quantum wells (QW) GaAs/InGaAs/GaAs are studied by electrophysical, photoluminescence and X-ray double-axes diffractometry methods. It is revealed that insertion of a thin AlAs potential barrier in the center of QW leads to efficient changes of subband structure and mobility. In the case of shallow and narrow quantum wells the observed decrease of mobility is due to appearance of the different scattering mechanism. X-ray diffractometry study is undertaken in order to distinguish whether it is interface roughness scattering from the introduced barrier or another scattering mechanism.
