The InGaAlP quaternary system allows the production of semiconductor lasers emitting light in the visible range of the spectrum. Recent advances in the visible semiconductor diode laser art have established the viability of diode structures with emission wavelengths comparable to the He-Ne gas laser. There has been much interest in the growth of wide bandgap quaternary thin films on GaAs, a substrate most commonly used in optoelectronic applications. There is particular interest in compositions which are lattice matched to GaAs, thus avoiding misfit dislocations which can be detrimental to the lifetime of these materials. As observed in Figure 1, the (AlxGa1-x)0.5In0.5P system has a very close lattice match to GaAs and is favored for these applications.In this work, we have studied the effect of silicon diffusion in GaAs/InGaAlP structures. Silicon diffusion in III-V semiconductor alloys has been found to have an disordering effect which is associated with removal of fine structures introduced during growth. Due to the variety of species available for interdiffusion, the disordering effect of silicon can have severe consequences on the lattice match at GaAs/InGaAlP interfaces.

The positions of high-order Laue zone (HOLZ) lines in the zero order disc of convergent beam electron diffraction (CBED) patterns are extremely sensitive to local lattice parameters. With proper care, these can be measured to a level of one part in 104 in nanometer sized areas. Recent upgrades to the Cornell UHV STEM have made energy filtered CBED possible with a slow scan CCD, and this technique has been applied to the measurement of strain in In0.2Ga0.8 As wires.Semiconductor quantum wire structures have attracted much interest for potential device applications. For example, semiconductor lasers with quantum wires should exhibit an improvement in performance over quantum well counterparts. Strained quantum wires are expected to have even better performance. However, not much is known about the true behavior of strain in actual structures, a parameter critical to their performance.

Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is currently used in a variety of applications including oxygen sensors, fuel cells, coatings for semiconductor lasers, and buffer layers for high-temperature superconducting films. Thin films of YSZ have been grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition, electrochemical vapor deposition, pulse-laser deposition (PLD), electron-beam evaporation, and sputtering. In this investigation, PLD was used to grow thin films of YSZ on (100) MgO substrates. This system proves to be an interesting example of relationships between interfaces and extrinsic dislocations in thin films of YSZ.In this experiment, a freshly cleaved (100) MgO substrate surface was prepared for deposition by cleaving a lmm-thick slice from a single-crystal MgO cube. The YSZ target material which contained 10mol% yttria was prepared from powders and sintered to 85% of theoretical density. The laser system used for the depositions was a Lambda Physik 210i excimer laser operating with KrF (λ=248nm, 1Hz repetition rate, average energy per pulse of 100mJ).
