High quality GaAs and InP have been grown on silicon substrates, using low pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition technique. The growth temperature is 550°C and the growth rate 100 A/min.

Photoluminescence, X-ray diffraction and electrochemical profiling verified the high quality of these layers. The use of superlattices as buffer layers, (GaAs/GaInP) in the case of GaAs/Si and (GaInAsP/InP) in the case of InP/Si, decreased the amount of misfit dislocations in the epitaxial layer. Carrier concentrations as low as 5.1015 cm−3 have been measured by electrochemical profiling.
