ABSTRACT
Undoped InAs was grown by molecular-beam epitaxy directly on GaP at a set of different substrate temperatures. Transport properties were characterized by means of Hall-effect and resistivity measurements at temperatures between 3 and 300 K. It was observed that samples grown at higher temperatures had lower carrier concentrations, consistent with a decrease of ionized defects. In addition, samples grown at higher temperatures also had higher mobility, consistent with a smaller number of scattering centers. Samples grown at higher temperatures also showed much higher sensitivity of the mobility to the measurement temperature, suggesting a drop in neutral scattering defects. Transmission electron microscopy showed that the samples grown at higher temperatures had a significantly different dislocation microstructure. The observed dislocation microstructure is consistent with the mechanisms proposed for the influence of growth temperature on the variation of carrier concentration and mobility. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
