Anomalous x-ray diffraction is used to investigate self-organized ordering of PbSe/PbEuTe quantum dot superlattices in which different ordered structures form for different PbSe dot layer spacings. Using a theoretical dot ordering model, the different ordering parameters are determined from the x-ray spectra. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    Local chemical composition of InGaN quantum dots grown by molecular-beam epitaxy on GaN virtual substrates was investigated by x-ray diffraction anomalous fine-structure method. Using this approach, we found that the In content increases from 20% at the dot base to 40–50% at the top. From...
