Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


GaP and GaAs1−xPx single crystal thin films were successfully grown on (100)-oriented GaP substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. At lower substrate temperatures these materials have a tendency to grow in pyramidal forms. However, at substrate temperatures of 560-600 °C, single crystalline films with high crystallographic quality and flat surfaces are grown at the intensity ratio of molecular beams, P/Ga, of about 100. The composition ratio x of GaAs1−xPx is dependent on the substrate temperature, Ts, and the intensity ratio P/As. The rate of decrease,-dx/dTs, is found to be 0.003 °C−1 for the entire composition-ratio range.
