X-Ray and Electron-Optical Characterization of ZnTe/CdTe and ZnTe/GaAs Epitaxial Layers Obtained by the MBE Method
Languages of publication
X-ray diffraction topography (Bragg diffraction) and X-ray rocking curve measurements were used to study the perfection and structural properties of ZnTe epitaxial layers on the CdTe and GaAs substrates. ZnTe epitaxial layers on CdTe were grown by MBE method by using a machine made in the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The ZnTe layers on GaAs were produced on the other, factory-made MBE system. The comparison between the X-ray topographical images of the substrate and epitaxial layer shows that imperfections on the substrate surface cause imperfections in the epitaxial layer. The results of double-crystal diffractometry measurements show that the perfection of the layer on the GaAs substrate is higher than that on the CdTe. The presence of microtwining in the ZnTe layer on the CdTe substrate was confirmed by RHEED measurements. The X-ray standing wave fluorescent spectra were also measured for the samples.
