    A cluster model is proposed for the midgap state EL2 in GaAs based on a defect reaction similar to that of the thermal donor formation in silicon. Anomalous depth profiles of the EL2 defects in bulk GaAs created by heat treatment have been quantitatively explained, assuming that the EL2 defect...

    Rather strong third- and fifth-order four-wave mixing (FWM) signals from a 500 μm thick undoped GaAs anda 350 μm thick undoped InP in detuning ranges of 80–170 meV below the band gap are observed. The spectrally resolved (SR) FWM signals for both samples far below the band gap are...

    The transport properties of multilayer GaAs/A1GaAs structures doped modulationally with Be so as to fill, in equilibrium, the states of upper Hubbard band (A[sup +] centers) with holes were studied. For the concentration of dopants on the order of 5 � 10[sup 11] cm[sup -2], the hopping...

    We describe the design, fabrication, and operation of a GaAs-based heterostructure device which emits band gap luminescence from solid-state tunnel-junction ballistic injection of electrons with sub-bandgap energy. We find that, due to energy conservation requirements, a collector bias exceeding...

    A simple technique for controlling the shift in band gap in AlGaAs/GaAs and InGaAs/GaAs quantum-well (QW) structures is reported. It involves the evaporation of a thin Ge layer and then covering it with spin-on silica followed by rapid thermal annealing. The quantum-well intermixing was...

    Surface photovoltage spectroscopy has been used in order to investigate surface states at Al/n-GaAs (110), Au/n-GaAs (110) and Al/p-InP (110), Au/p-InP (110),(100) interfaces. Our results show formation of metal-induced surface states, which can be correlated with Fermi level pinning positions....

  • Persistent photoluminescence quenching of 0.68-eV emission in undoped semi-insulating GaAs. Yu, Phil Won // Applied Physics Letters;1984, Vol. 44 Issue 3, p330 

    The persistent photoluminescence quenching effect is shown to occur on the broad 0.68-eV emission commonly present in undoped semi-insulating GaAs bulk materials. The dependence of this persistent emission on below band-gap energy excitation has been measured. The data indicate involvement of...
