Extended defects in 3 × 10[sup 18] cm[sup -3] Si-doped and 2 × 10[sup 19] cm[sup -3] In-doped GaAs grown by the liquid encapsulated Czochralski technique are investigated using x-ray topography and found to include straight and helicoidal dislocations propagating along the central axis of the ingot. These dislocations are not simply extensions of dislocations in the seed. The defect morphology is explained by strong interaction with native point defects and elastic strain associated with solute segregation at the growing interface.

    We describe how the Bi content of GaAs1-xBix epilayers grown on GaAs can be controlled by the growth conditions in molecular beam epitaxy. Nonstandard growth conditions are required because of the strong tendency for Bi to surface segregate under usual growth conditions for GaAs. A maximum Bi...
