Abstract

Dislocations are produced at the interface between epilayers and the substrate when there is a lattice mismatch. When GaAs is grown on Ge substrates, these dislocations can propagate into the epilayers. They can then interact with one another or with antiphase boundaries which are generated when the polar-material is grown on a non-polar materials.The interactions between these defects have been investigated using the weak-beam imaging technique of transmission electron microscopy. Possible interactions between the misfit dislocations and heterojunctions were examined in a specially prepared layer structure model of GaAs-AlxGal−xAs.
