ABSTRACT
Spatially resolved photoluminescence properties of semi-insulating, liquid encapsulated Czochralski-grown GaAs substrates are analyzed with a laser scanning microscope. The improved resolution of the laser scanning microscope results in the observation of single dislocations within the subgrain boundaries of the polyganized dislocation cell network for the first time by photoluminescence. Both the cell structure and the Cottrell cloud are clearly resolved.

    We have measured the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) light emission spectrum of a single molecule of rhodamine 6G (R6G) adsorbed on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG). Since the HOPG substrate radiates no STM light, we have succeeded in observing the spectrum radiated by R6G alone....

    We report on the growth of planar semipolar [formula] GaN on [formula] prepatterned sapphire. This is a method that allows the growth of semipolar oriented [formula] GaN on large scale.
