  • $In_xGa_{1-x}N$ alloys with 20-nm-thickness were deposited onto Mg:GaN/AlN/SiC substrates by MOCVD at $800\;^{\circ}C$. TMGa, TMIn and $NH_3$ were used as the precursor of gallium, indium and nitrogen, respectively. The mole ratio of indium in $In_xGa_{1-x}N$ films varied between 0 and 0.2. The energy-band-gaps of the films were obtained from the photoluminescence and cathodoluminescence peaks. The mole ratios of $In_xGa_{1-x}N$ films were calculated by applying Vegard's law to XRD results. The energy-band-gap versus indium composition plot for $In_xGa_{1-x}N$ alloys were well fit with a bowing parameter of 2.27.

  • $GaxIn{1_x}As$ epitaxial layers were grown by a simplified hydrode vapor phase epitaxy(VPE) method bsed on the utilization of Ga/In alloy as the source metal. The effects of a wide range of experimental variables(i.e.,inlet mole fraction of HCI, deposition temperature, Ga/In alloy composition) on the ternary composition and growth rate were investigated. Layers of $Ga_{0.47}In_{0.53}As$ lattice matched to InP were successfully grown from alloys containing 5 to 8 at.% Ga. These layers were used to produce state-of-the art p-i-n photodetectors having the following characteristics: dark current, $I_d$(-5V) = 10-20 nA: responsivity, R=0.84-0.86 A/W; dark current, Id(-5V)=10-20 nA; responsivity, R=0.84-0.86 A/W; capacitance, C=0.88-0.92 pF; breakdown voltage, $V_b$ >40V. This study demonstrated for the first time that a simplified hydride VPE process with a Ga/In alloy source is capable of producing device quality epitaxial layers.

  • The optical properties of $ZnS_{y}Se_{1-x-y}:Te_x\;(x\;<\;0.08,\;y\∼0.11$) alloys grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) have been investigated by photoluminescence (PL) and PL-excitation (PLE) spectroscopy. Good optical properties and high crystal quality were established with lattice match condition to GaAs substrate. At room temperature, emission in the visible spectrum region from blue to green was obtained by varying the Te content of the ZnSSe:Te alloy. The efficient blue and green emission were assigned to $Te_{1}$Tel and $Te_{n}$ (n$\geq$2) cluster bound excitons, respectively. Bright blue (462 nm) and green (535 nm) light emitting diodes (LEDs) have been developed using ZnSSe:Te system as an active layer.
