High-resolution measurements of the zero phonon line (ZPL) of the EL2 intracenter absorption were performed. Several samples, both Czochralski and Bridgman grown, have been examined. The shape and position of the ZPL were virtually identical for all the samples. No splitting of the ZPL was detected.

    Time-resolved second-harmonic generation was used to generate and detect coherent longitudinal optical phonons in GaAs/Al[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]As single heterojunctions. Three coherent LO[sub GaAs], LO[sub GaAs-like], and LO[sub AlAs-like] phonons were launched by transiently screening the depletion...

    After the EL2 absorption band at 1.2 eV is fully photoquenched [i.e., EL2 defect completely transferred from the normal (EL20) to metastable (EL2*) state] it can be partially recovered by photon excitation. This EL2*→EL20 recovery exhibits peaks at 0.80 and 0.90 eV with shoulders at 0.86...

    A new interpretation is offered for the observed reversal of contrast in the infrared absorption of nonuniformly distributed deep centers, related to EL2, in large-diameter, liquid-encapsulation-grown, semi-insulating GaAs. In the photoquenched state, having reversed contrast, the absorption...

    The IR absorption spectra were measured at 77 K for Te-doped n-GaAs samples irradiated by electrons with an energy of E = 3 MeV. It was found that the samples exhibit two absorption bands in the IR range, corresponding to 1.0 and 0.8 eV.
