    The pressure dependence of the DX center in Ga1-xAlxAs :Te has been studied in two samples with x=0.15 and 0.35, respectively. The pressure coefficients of the activation energies for both emission and capture were found to change sign when the band gap of GaAlAs changes from direct to indirect....

    In this article, we report the effect of cooling conditions on transport data in Si-doped Al[SUBx]Ga[SUB1-x]As. We show that a rapid cooling induces a freezing out of electrons similar to that observed after photoionization of the sample at low temperatures. By diving the sample in liquid...

    The capture kinetics of electrons on DX centers are interpreted in terms of a simple model taking only into account the fact that the concentrations of the DX centers and of the doping impurities are equal. It is shown that there is no need to introduce an alloying effect in order to explain the...

    n-type dopants in Alx Ga1-x As, GaAs1-x Px, and related compounds create deep donors that control the free-electron concentration for x>0.2. The electron capture by the deep donors shows a very nonexponential dependence with filling time. In this letter the electron capture kinetics is modeled,...
