    The results of experiments with quantum wells on 3 C-SiC/4 H-SiC and 3 C-SiC/6 H-SiC heterojunctions obtained by various methods are reconsidered. Spontaneous polarizations, field strengths, and energies of local levels in quantum wells on 3 C-SiC/ NH-SiC heterojunctions were calculated within a...

    We report a low-temperature photoluminescence study of 4H/3C/4H-SiC single quantum wells. A quantum well consists of thirteen 3C-SiC bilayers as displayed in a high-resolution transmission electron microscope image. The optical emission energy of the quantum well is more than 200 meV below the...

    We report on the properties of semipolar (Zn,Mg)O/ZnO quantum wells homoepitaxially grown by molecular beam epitaxy on [formula] R-plane ZnO substrates. We demonstrate that atomically flat interfaces can be achieved with fully relaxed quantum wells because the mismatch between (Zn,Mg)O and ZnO...

  • On the possibility of the experimental determination of spontaneous polarization for silicon carbide polytypes. Davydov, S.; Lebedev, A.; Posrednik, O. // Semiconductors;Jul2012, Vol. 46 Issue 7, p913 

    A NH-SiC/3 C-SiC heterojunction and a heterostructure of the NH-SiC/3 C-SiC/ NH-SiC type ( N = 2, 4, 6, 8), fabricated from silicon carbide polytypes, are considered. Two possibilities are analyzed for the heterojunctions, in which a Si or a C plane is the contact plane of the NH polytype. In...

    Time-integrated photoluminescence experiments are used to study the excitonic optical recombinations in wurtzite ZnO/Zn1-xMgxO single quantum wells of varying widths and magnesium compositions. By comparing experimental results with a variational calculation of excitonic energies, the authors...
