Paper Abstract

AlGaAs/GaAs multiple quantum well structures have been deposited on native oxide patterned GaAs substrates and characterized by low temperature photoluminescence (PL). Standard photolithography was used to generate patterns on the plasma-grown native oxides. Single crystal multiple quantum wells grown on areas where oxides were removed have comparable high quality with those on the unpatterned substrate. QW's with different well widths ranging from 25-73 Å. show well-resolved distinct peaks in the PL spectra and the linewidths of the peaks are the same as those on the unpatterned wafer. Poly-QW's deposited on the oxide-covered regions also display a very strong luminescence signal. Instead of distinct peaks corresponding to each of the wells, a single wide band centered near the widest well transition energy was observed. There are potential applications of the polycrystalline material for ultrafast optical devices because of the short carrier lifetime. With the selective epitaxy technique, integration of active devices with single crystal QW's and others using polycrystalline is possible.
