Stimulated emission, obtainable at high optical pumping levels, has been used to follow the pressure dependence of the Γ-band gap of molecular beam epitaxial In0.53Ga0.47As on (001)InP. Hydrostatic pressure was generated using a diamond anvil cell, and all measurements were made at room temperature. The gap varies sublinearly with pressure for P>=10 kbar, having an initial slope of 12.44 meV/kbar. The deviation from a linear behavior is largely due to nonlinearities in the equation of state at higher pressures. The deformation potential (Ξd+ (1)/(3) Ξu-a) =-(7.79±0.4)eV, for the Γ-band gap.

    In this work, we report on the effect of annealing on the distribution of indium in the surface region of In-alloyed GaAs crystals. Auger, secondary ion mass spectroscopy, and photoluminescence were used as the analytical tools. It is shown that In migrates and piles up over a depth of several...

    Hole drift velocities in n-type In0.53Ga0.47As have been determined experimentally for the first time. Measured values of the frequency response of transit-time-limited InGaAs p-i-n photodiodes were fit with the theoretical response using hole velocity as the only free parameter. Measurements...

    Photoluminescence in InGaAs/GaAs strained-layer quantum wells is strongly quenched by temperatures above 10–100 K, depending on the well width. Analysis of this dependence shows that the quenching mechanism is thermal activation of electron-hole pairs from the wells into the GaAs...
