Paper Abstract

Molecular layer epitaxy was demonstrated using TMG-AsH3 and TEG-AsH3 systems. Monomolecular layer growth per operational cycle of alternate gas injections was realized on (100) faces independent of injected TMG and AsH3 pressures in a certain range. This result implies stable chemisorption (bond-to-bond type adsorption) of reactive species by monolayer on the substrate surface. Mass spectrometric analyses suggested that this adsorbate is partially decomposed TMG, such as Ga (CH3)x, where x is a numerical function of temperature . Surface migration process was investigated in a conventional Ga-AsC13-H2 system using a triangle table method. On (111)B facets, anisotropic two-dimensional growth based on the surface migration of adsorbed species was found to be a dominant process. The direction with the largest rate of lateral growth was <12T>, while that with the smallest one was <112>.
