    We have investigated a Sb-enhanced solid phase epitaxy of Si on a p-type (100)Si substrate through intermixing of amorphous Si and Sb thin films and a subsequent recrystallization of the polycrystalline Si (poly-Si). By using cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy, we show that a high...

    InSb films have been grown by molecular beam epitaxy on GaAs substrates. The procedure incorporated a low-temperature (300 °C) growth of a thin (300 Å) InSb interface layer prior to the InSb active layer growth at 380 °C. A beam equivalent pressure ratio of Sb4 to In of 4 led to...

    Au/Ni contacts were fabricated on Sb-doped p-type ZnO film, which was grown on n-type Si (100) substrate with a thin undoped ZnO buffer layer by molecular beam epitaxy. As-deposited contacts were rectifying while Ohmic behavior was achieved after thermally annealing the contacts in nitrogen...

    This paper describes the structural evolution and characterization of heteroepitaxial GaSb thin films on Si(111) substrates. The growth process used a combination of atomic sources which included the rf sputtering of Sb and the thermal effusion of Ga. The formation of crystalline GaSb thin films...
