Strained Layer Superlattices

  • Erich Kasper
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 170)


An increasingly important flexibility in the design and fabrication of many types of high performance electronic devices is obtained by heterostructure or superlattice materials. Properties that cannot be achieved in bulk materials are provided by quantum size effects or by the artificial modulation of superlattice structures. Much of the work on such structures was performed with lattice matched materials (GaAs/GaAlAs and InP/InGaAsP). Both, scientific and industrial interest is responsible for the extension of work to lattice mismatched materials.
