ABSTRACT
Cathodoluminescence and electroacoustic detection have been used for the characterization of Be-doped GaAs epilayers grown by molecular beam epitaxy for the doping levels greater than 6.5×1017 at. cm-3. The Be concentration dependence of cathodoluminescence intensity as well as electron acoustic intensity shows the presence of nonradiative centers for concentrations greater than 1018 at. cm-3. Besides, extended defects and doping striations are revealed by electron acoustic images for heavily Be-doped GaAs (1020 at. cm-3).
