    A comparison of Si doping behavior in GaAs layers on (110) and (001) surfaces under the same growth conditions shows that the autocompensation ratio in (110) layers is usually higher than in (001) layers. However, under certain conditions (low substrate temperature, high As[sub 4] pressure, and...
