    Deep-level defects in InGaN/InGaN/ p-GaN:Mg heterostructures were studied using deep-level optical spectroscopy (DLOS). Depth-resolved DLOS was achieved by exploiting the polarization-induced electric fields to discriminate among defects located in the InGaN and the InGaN regions. Growth...

    The effect of ultrasonic deformation on the polarization properties of semiconductor quantum-well laser radiation is experimentally and theoretically studied at room temperature. It is shown that the observed rotation of the polarization plane is caused by mixing of the light- and heavy-hole...

    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...

    Ferromagnetic ordering of two types (depending on the sample geometry) is found to occur in a thin GaMnAs alloy layer (Mn δ layer) in heterostructures containing an InGaAs/GaAs quantum well. Singular samples in which the δ Mn layer is parallel to the (001) GaAs plane exhibit the '3/2'...
