ZnTe epilayers have been grown on 2°-tilted m-plane 10 1 ̄ 0 sapphire substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. Pole figure imaging was used to study the domain distribution within the layer, and the pole figures of 111, 220, 004, and 422 ZnTe and 30 3 ̄ 0 sapphire were measured. Computer simulation was used to analyze the symmetry of the diffraction patterns seen in the pole figure images. Stereographic projections were also compared with the pole figures of 422 and 211 ZnTe, confirming that single-domain (211)-oriented ZnTe epilayers had been grown on the 2°-tilted m-plane sapphire substrates. Although differences in crystal structure and lattice mismatch were severe in these heterostructures, precise control of the substrate surface's lattice arrangement would result in the formation of high-quality epitaxial layers.
