The first measurements of electroabsorption in AlGaAs/GaAs multiple quantum wells grown on transparent GaP substrates are reported. High quality quantum well materials with sharp, well defined excitonic resonances are grown by employing a GaAsP intermediate layer between the quantum wells and the substrate. Good surface morphology and abrupt interfaces have been achieved with etch pit densities of 4×105 cm-2. A 7.5-meV shift of the absorption edge to lower energies is observed for field strengths of 8×104 V/cm. These structures are well suited for photonic switch array fabrication.

    Spectrally-, polarization-, and time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) experiments have been performed on 2.5 nm thick m-plane single InGaN quantum wells. It has been found that PL decay is mainly determined by nonradiative recombination through several types of recombination centers, while PL...

    We show that a dynamically stable Ga film is formed on (0001) AlN in a large range of Ga fluxes at a substrate temperature of 740 °C. This feature allows for atomic layer epitaxy (ALE) of GaN on AlN by alternate exposure to Ga and N flux. We show that, at a growth temperature of 740 °C,...
