ABSTRACT
In0.5Ga0.5P light-emitting diodes (LED’s) that operate in the 660 nm region were fabricated on Si substrates using GaAs buffer layers. InGaP layers were grown by metalorganic-chloride vapor phase epitaxy (MO-chloride VPE), and GaAs layers were grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE) at atmospheric pressure. Red color emission was clearly seen under room light at 20 mA dc injection. The LED operation was stable at 5 kA/cm2 despite the high dislocation density of around 107 cm-2 .

    We report linewidth narrowing for 1.3-μm InGaAsP distributed feedback lasers with either a long cavity length or a detuned Bragg wavelength. The narrowest linewidth measured was 3 MHz at 6 mW for a 780-μm long-cavity laser, and was 8 MHz at 5.5 mW for a 250-μm regular-length laser with...

    The intermixing process of InGaAs/InP multiple quantum well structures by Zn diffusion at 550 °C is investigated. Secondary ion mass spectroscopy and x-ray analysis reveal that Zn diffusion induces the intermixing of group III atoms, but has little effect on group V profiles. However,...

    By making transport measurements on InGaAs/InP superlattices we have been able to demonstrate a regime of rapid electron tunneling perpendicular to the layers in the presence of quantum hole localization, i.e., effective mass filtering. The experiments were conducted on multiple quantum well and...
