    Total energy calculations show that the (111) (AlAs)n(GaAs)n superlattice has a lower formation enthalpy (i.e., is stabler) than either the (001) or (110) superlattices. Self-consistent band structure calculations further show that while the (001) superlattice is direct only for n>7, the (111)...

    A new type of semiconductor superlattice laser grown by molecular beam epitaxy is realized in GaAs. The active region of the injection laser consists of alternating n and p Dirac-delta doped layers resulting in a sawtooth-shaped conduction-band and valence-band edge. The band gap of this new...
