ABSTRACT
Extremely thin InAs/GaAs single quantum well structures have been grown by atomic layer epitaxy. The wells were 2 and 4 InAs monolayers thick. Photoluminescence spectra (19 K) from these structures are sharp, intense, and uniform across the sample with full widths at half-maximum for the 2 and 4 monolayer wells of 12 and 17 meV, respectively. These results indicate the high degree of control inherent in atomic layer epitaxy as well as its ability to grow high quality materials.

    We have prepared by molecular beam epitaxy a new type of planar superlattice (PSL), in which an array of periodically spaced AlAs bars of one monolayer (ML) in thickness is inserted in the middle of a GaAs quantum well. This grid-inserted quantum well (GI–QW) is prepared on a misoriented...
