Abstract

It is shown for the first time that the structural and optical functional characteristics of integrated GaAs/Si(100) heterostructures can be controlled by using misoriented Si(100) substrates and their preliminary etching. The growth of an epitaxial GaAs layer on a Si substrate without the formation of antiphase domains can be carried out on a substrate deviated from the (100) singular plane by an angle smaller than 4°–6° or without a transition layer of GaAs nanocolumns. Preliminary treatment of the silicon substrate by etching makes it possible to use it for the vapor-phase epitaxial growth of a single-crystal GaAs film with a considerably smaller relaxation coefficient, which has a positive effect on the structural quality of the film. These data are in good agreement with the results of IR reflectance spectroscopy and photoluminescence and ultraviolet spectroscopy. The features of the optical properties of integrated GaAs/Si(100) heterostructures in the infrared and ultraviolet spectral regions are also defined by the relaxation coefficient.
