ABSTRACT
A hybrid double heterostructure with large asymmetric band offsets, combining AlAsSb/InAs (as a III-V part) and CdMgSe/CdSe (as a II-VI part), has been proposed as a basic element of a midinfrared laser structure design. The p-i-n diode structure has been successfully grown by molecular beam epitaxy and has exhibited an intense long-wavelength electroluminescence at 3.12 μm (300 K). A less than 10 times reduction of electroluminescence intensity from 77 to 300 K indicates an efficient carrier confinement in the InAs active layer due to high potential barriers in conduction and valence bands, estimated as ΔE[sub C]=1.28 eV and ΔE[sub V]∼1.6 eV. The type of band lineups at a coherent InAs/Cd[sub 1-x]Mg[sub x]Se interface is discussed for 0≤x≤0.15. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
