ABSTRACT
Presents a study that proposed a technique for the control of zinc diffusion in indium phosphide/InGaAs heterojunction bipolar transistor structures grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. Investigation of the anomalous zinc diffusion during low-temperature growth; Effect of growth interruption before base formation of zinc; Effect of high-temperature growth of the n[sup+] subcollector.
