Characterization of Defects in GaAs by Photoluminescence Measurements

  • E. Fabre
Conference paper


Photoluminescence measurements at 4.2 K have been applied to the characterization of defects in gallium arsenide, either in bulk or in epitaxial material. This paper deals with a particular acceptor center: the gallium vacancy-donor complex. The interactions of this defect with dislocations on the one hand, and with copper on the other, are investigated and discussed.
