    We report large peak-to-valley current ratios in InAs/AlxGa1-xSb/InAs single-barrier tunnel structures. The mechanism for single-barrier negative differential resistance (NDR) has been proposed and demonstrated recently. A peak-to-valley current ratio of 3.4 (1.2) at 77 K (295 K), which is...

    The first device performance of GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs double-heterostructure lasers grown by chemical beam epitaxy (CBE) is reported. Very low averaged current threshold densities of ∼500 A/cm2 were obtained for wafers with active layer thicknesses of ∼500–1000 Å and confinement...

    The nature of dislocations in (001) CdTe-(001) GaAs heterostructures was investigated by transmission electron microscopy. The samples were grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition with CdTe layer thicknesses h ranging from 0.1 to 2.2 μm. The interface contains an array of misfit...

    We have measured the electron velocity in low-doped GaAs and in AlGaAs/GaAs modulation-doped heterostructures at electric fields up to 8000 V/cm at both 300 and 77 K. In order to avoid the charge domain formation which occurs in dc measurements at these fields, this measurement uses 35 GHz...

    AlAs/GaAs/AlAs double-barrier heterostructures grown along the (111) crystal axis show a factor of two improvement in the peak-to-valley ratio compared to samples grown in the (100) orientation. A structure consisting of 2.8 nm barriers and an 8 nm well shows a peak-to-valley ratio much better...

    We have studied the effect of microwave radiation (frequency, 2.45 GHz; specific power density, 1.5 W/cm²) on the relaxation of internal mechanical strains in the (i) n-n[sup +]-GaAs structures, (ii)Au-Ti-n-n[sup +]GaAs diode structures with Schottky barriers, and (iii) GaAs-based...

    The morphology of an oxidized cleaved surface of a grid of alternating GaAs and Ga[sub 0.7]Al[sub 0.3]As layers was investigated by atomic-force microscopy. It was found that the surface of the native oxide film on a cleaved surface possesses a quasistationary nanorelief that reflects the...

    Molecular beam epitaxy was used for the first time to grow novel GaAs/GaSb heterostructures with ultrathin (0.8-3 monolayers) GaAs layers embedded in GaSb. These structures were studied by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and photoluminescence. By contrast to known structures...

    Triple GaAs/GaAsN/InGaAs heterostructures were grown by MBE on GaAs substrates, and their optical properties were studied. The band-edge line-up in GaAs/GaAsN and InGaAs/GaAsN heterostructures was analyzed by correlating the experimental photoluminescence spectra with the known parameters of the...
