ABSTRACT
Modulation-doped GaAs heterostructures with low-temperature electron mobilities of 5.0×106 cm2/V s at a two-dimensional electron areal density of 1.6×1011 cm-2 have been made. The mobilities are the highest ever observed in a semiconductor. Multiple quantum wells of GaAs prepared by similar methods showed electron mobilities up to 0.54×106 cm2/V s at an areal density of 5.3×1011 cm-2 per layer, which also exceeds any mobility value previously reported for multiple well structures. The structures were grown by molecular beam epitaxy with an atomic-plane sheet-doping technique.

    We investigate the ballistic motion of hot holes in a submicron channel fabricated from a modulation-doped p-type GaAs/(AlGa)As quantum well heterostructure. We observe peaks in the low temperature differential conductance, which we attribute to ballistic motion of holes limited by the onset of...
