    We report the determination of the energy-band offsets between GaN and AlN using the linewidth (full width at half maximum) of an extremely sharp excitonic luminescence transition in AlxGa1-xN alloy with x=0.18 at 10 K. Our sample was grown on C-plane sapphire substrate by metal-organic...

    Reflection magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectrum was measured from 1.6 to 3.0 eV to determine the nature of sp-d exchange in epitaxial InMnAs thin films. At room temperature and an applied field of 0.5 T, the MCD spectrum is composed of two types of transitions: a negative peak centered...

    Low threshold cw laser emission from a semiconductor disk laser emitting at 1260 nm was demonstrated. Using high quality metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy (GaIn) (NAs) material, nonradiative processes could be minimized. As a consequence, threshold pump power densities have been reduced down to...

    The growth of InGaAsN/GaAs multiple quantum well structures by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy is monitored by in situ reflectometry. The nitrogen incorporation is found to depend superlinearly on the precursor flow and a threshold value for the flow is observed. By in situ measurements of the...
