Abstract

Strain-balanced type-II InAs/InAs1-xSbx superlattices with various compositions (x 0.22, 0.23, 0.37) and different layer thicknesses (tInAs 7 nm, tInAsSb 3.3, 2.3, 2.0 nm, respectively) have been grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on GaSb substrates. X-ray diffraction revealed narrow satellite peaks (full-width-half-maximum of <100 arc sec), indicative of uniform superlattice periodicity and excellent crystallinity, which was also corroborated by cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy observations. Despite relaxation, low-temperature photoluminescence measurements showed peaks at 6.7 μm and 5.8 μm, while photoconductance results showed strong spectral response up to 200 K, when the photoresponse onset was 8.6 μm.
