Properties of GaAs-AlGaAs Quantum Wire Superlattices Grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy

  • Pierre M. Petroff
Conference paper


A novel type of superlattice, the serpentine superlattice, with a built in quantum wire superlattice has been grown directly by molecular beam epitaxy. The uniformity issues and photoluminescence polarization anisotropy properties associated with the quantum wire superlattice are presented. Both transmission electron microscopy and photoluminescence measurements indicate that control of the growth kinetics still limits the quality of these structures.
