Growth of a solid AlxGa1as solution on gallium phosphide substrates by the liquid epitaxy method

  • 14 Accesses


  1. 1.

    Monocrystalline films of the solid solution AlxGa1−xAs with x=0.3−0.4 were grown on GaP sub-strates. The films have a smoother surface on the (111) B side of the substrate.

  2. 2.

    The distribution of the composition over the film thickness can be uniform.

  3. 3.

    A microscopic study of the films in visible transmitted light permits additional information to be obtained about the internal perfection of films of the solid solution.
