We report on molecular beam epitaxial growth of InSb submonolayer insertions in an InAs matrix, exhibiting intense mid-IR photoluminescence (PL) up to room temperature (RT). The InSb insertions are fabricated by an exposure of InAs surface to an antimony Sb4 flux. The nominal thickness of insertions grown at different temperatures (TS=400–485 °C) ranges from 0.6 to 1.4 monolayer, as estimated from x-ray diffraction measurements of InSb/InAs multiple submonolayer structures. This gives rise to the variation of the emission wavelength within the 3.9–4.3 μm range at RT. An integral PL intensity drop from 77 K to RT does not exceed 20 times.

    A strained GaInAs/AlInAs saturable Bragg reflector (SBR) was fabricated from layers grown by molecular-beam epitaxy. The device consisted of nominally 25 periods of GaAs/AlAs Bragg structures incorporating double GaInAs/AlInAs quantum wells latticed matched to InP. The SBR was measured to be...
