The sign anomaly in the Hall coefficient observed in substitutionally doped amorphous Si:H and amorphous Ge:H is also found in amorphous Si:H/Ge:H superlattices. The size of the Hall mobility in the superlattice is comparable to the Hall mobility in amorphous Si:H and amorphous Ge:H.

    The x-ray diffraction technique is used to measure the interdiffusion coefficients of a symmetrically strained Ge/Si superlattice consisting of alternating Ge and Si layers grown on a Ge0.4Si0.6 buffer layer. The buffer layer was 200 nm thick and was grown on a Si (100) substrate in order to...

    Theoretical predictions are presented of electronic and optical properties of the Si/Ge (2:6) superlattice grown on (001) SiGe buffers. It is shown that the buffer layer on which the superlattice is grown controls the polarization isotropy of the fundamental cross-gap transition and may be used...
