Depth Resolution in Profiling of Thin GaAs-GaAlAs Layers

  • J. Gavrilovic
Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 44)


Thin gallium-arsenide and gallium-aluminum-arsenide layers (usually called superlattices) are investigated with increasing frequency due to their remarkable electronic and optical properties. These structures, which consist of many (50 to 100 or more) layers of 15 to 500 angstrom thickness, are often doped with elements such as silicon, selenium, zinc, magnesium, etc. to alter their electronic and optical characteristics[1].
