ABSTRACT
This letter reports the first observation of resonant tunneling negative differential resistance (NDR) through a double barrier GaAs-AlxGa1-xAs -GaAs-AlxGa1-x As-GaAs structure at room temperature. The NDR yields radio frequency oscillations at 300 K in a coaxial cable circuit that compare closely to those of a standard 1N3716 tunnel diode.

    Molecular beam epitaxy was used for the first time to grow novel GaAs/GaSb heterostructures with ultrathin (0.8-3 monolayers) GaAs layers embedded in GaSb. These structures were studied by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and photoluminescence. By contrast to known structures...

    We have developed a method of fabricating very shallow, gateable, undoped 2-dimensional electron gases (2DEG) and making very low resistivity contacts to these. We studied the evolution of mobility as a function of the depth of the 2DEG (from 300 nm to 30 nm). We extract quantitative information...

    We study the power dependence of radiation-induced resistance oscillations in GaAs/AlGaAS heterostructures. According to recent experimental results, the amplitude of these oscillations increases with the radiation power following a sublinear relation. We find that this striking result can be...

    The distribution of the transverse photovoltage has been investigated in samples of a Ge-GaAs heterostructure with an oxide layer (∼15 Å) at the interface. A method of simultaneous excitation with modulated and unmodulated radiation is used to observe the long-term relaxation of the...

    When a Si-doped GaAs-AlAs/GaAs heterostructure is illuminated with 1.98 eV light at 4.2 K, a reduction in the two-dimensional (2D) electron density (n[sub 2D]) is observed. This reduction is followed at times by a small increase in n[sub 2D] even after the illumination has been switched off....

    ZnO thin films were epitaxially grown on (001) GaAs substrate by laser molecular beam epitaxy with SrTiO3 (STO) as a buffer layer. The interface properties of ZnO/GaAs heterostructure are greatly improved by inserting STO buffer layer. The interfacial effects on the transport and dielectric...

    Multilayer InAs-GaAs structures with an array of vertically aligned InAs quantum dots in a GaAs matrix, grown by molecular-beam epitaxy, were investigated by crystal truncation rods and high-resolution x-ray diffractometry methods.
