ABSTRACT
Photoluminescence and magnetotransport measurements have been performed to assess the quality of modulation-doped GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures. The temporal evolution of the low-temperature electron mobility of samples prepared in a molecular-beam-epitaxy chamber containing manganese as a source material was studied. Mn contamination was identified to be responsible for the reduction of the electron mobility to 1×106 cm2/V s and the appearance of a distinct photoluminescence band. In contrast, structures in which this signal is absent reach mobility values of 5.4×106 cm2/V s. This directly proves that the epitaxy of high-mobility electron systems and structures containing GaMnAs layers, in principle, can be combined in one growth chamber.
