Aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy images of the In0.15Ga0.85N active region of a blue light-emitting diode, acquired at ~0.1% of the electron dose known to cause electron beam damage, show no lateral compositional fluctuations, but do exhibit one to four atomic plane steps in the active layer’s upper boundary. The area imaged was measured to be 2.9 nm thick using position averaged convergent beam electron diffraction, ensuring the sample was thin enough to capture compositional variation if it was present. A focused ion beam prepared sample with a very large thin area provides the possibility to directly observe large fluctuations in the active layer thickness that constrict the active layer at an average lateral length scale of 430 nm.
Polycrystalline diamond films previously grown on silicon were polished to an RMS roughness of 15 nm and bonded to the silicon in a dedicated ultrahigh vacuum bonding chamber. Successful bonding under a uniaxial mechanical stress of 32 MPa was observed at temperatures as low as 950°C. Scanning acoustic microscopy indicated complete bonding at fusion temperatures above 1150°C. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy later revealed a 30 nm thick intermediate amorphous layer consisting of silicon, carbon and oxygen.
