Examines the misfit dislocation microstructures and strain relaxation kinetics for lattice mismatched (100) and (110) interfaces in the In[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]As/InP system. Comparison between the tensile and compressive stress of the interfaces; Rules for dislocation motion and structure; Correlation between strain relaxation rate and excess stress.

    We report on the epitaxial growth of an AlSb/InAs heterostructure on a (001) GaP substrate. We investigate the conditions for the most efficient relaxation of GaSb islands on GaP. In particular, we show that the GaP surface treatment and the growth temperature are crucial for the formation of a...
