Abstract

Gallium arsenide is one of a number of binary compounds between elements of Group III (B, Al, Ga, In) and Group V (P, As, Sb) of the periodic table whose potential as semiconductors was first pointed out by Welker(1) in 1952. Of these, GaAs has proved the most generally useful, both alone and in its solid solutions with GaP and AlAs. Most applications stem from six basic properties of the semiconductor:
