Abstract

We have investigated the stability of ensembles of Ge/Si(100) islands by annealing at their growth temperature. Islands grown by molecular beam epitaxy at temperatures of 450, 550, 600 and 650°C were annealed for times between 5 and 120 minutes. Small, pure Ge hut clusters, bound by {105} facets appear to be extremely stable structures, surviving the longest anneals with no apparent coarsening. Dome clusters, however, coarsen. Large alloyed hut clusters, apparent in as-grown samples only for growth temperatures greater than 600°C, appear during annealing at 450 and 550°C. During anneals at 550 and 650°C, we observe novel coarsening behavior. Arrays of crystallographically oriented, alloyed hut clusters are formed which result from the dissolution of large, alloyed dome clusters.
