Excitonic properties and band alignment in lattice-matched ZnCdSe/ZnMgSe multiple-quantum-well structures
Optional Fields
Lattice-matched Zn0.85Cd0.15Se/Zn0.74Mg0.26Se multiple-quantum-well structures were obtained on GaAs(001) using graded-composition InyGa1-yAs layers to match the II-VI lattice parameter to the III-V substrate. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy studies show that the effect of the crosshatch pattern of the InyGa1-yAs surface is limited to long-period coherent undulations of quantum well and barrier layers. Optical measurements of the excitonic properties as a function of well thickness, complemented by self-consistent calculations of the transition energies, indicate good quantum confinement in the well, with a 68% conduction band contribution to the 0.482 eV band gap difference.
