Forbidden band width and optical properties of thin gallium phosphide films

  • N. G. Tsvelykh
  • V. A. Tsendrovskii


The temperature dependence of the forbidden band width of gallium phosphide films deposited by a discrete method on various substrates has been investigated in the present work. The influence of the material and temperature of the substrate on the forbidden band width and its change with thickness, are determined. This latter is treated as the appearance of a quantum dimensional effect. The dispersion of gallium phosphide films is measured in the visible band of the spectrum.
