Quantum Nanostructure of InGaAs on Submicron Gratings by Constant Growth Technique

  • Published : 2001.12.01


A new constant growth technique to conserve an initial grating height of V-groove AlGaAs/InGaAs quantum nanostructures above 1.0 $\mu\textrm{m}$ thickness has been successfully embodied on submicron gratings using low pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. A GaAs buffer prior to an AlGaAs barrier layer on submicron gratings plays an important role in overcoming mass transport effects and improving the uniformity of gratings. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) image shows that high-density V-groove InGaAs quantum wires (QWRs) are well confined at the bottom of gratings. The photoluminescence (PL) peak of the InGaAs QWRs is observed in the temperature range from 10 to 280 K with a relatively narrow full width at half maximum less than 40 meV at room temperature PL. The constant growth technique is an important step to realize complex optoelectronic devices such as one-step grown distributed feedback lasers and two-dimensional photonic crystal.
