    Heteroepitaxy of high-quality InSb films was performed directly on GaAs surfaces by using molecular beam epitaxy. Despite the 14.6% lattice mismatch, two-dimensionally grown InSb on GaAs(111)A substrates were obtained from the initial stage, but not on (001) substrates. A conductive layer was...

    Molecular beam epitaxy has been used to prepare multiple quantum well structures of CdTe/Cd1-xMnxTe on (001) InSb substrates. The growth of such a system on InSb allows the use of particularly low growth temperatures, hence minimizing interdiffusion effects. This study presents the first...
