Abstract

Synthesis of ternary SiGeSn semiconductors on Si(100) via Sn xGe1-x buffer layers was carried out. The crystal structure, elemental distribution and morphological properties of the Si 1-xGexSny/Ge1-xSnx heterostructures were characterized by high-resolution electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction and atomic force microscopy. Growth of epitaxial, uniform and aligned layers with atomically smooth surfaces and monocrystalline structures that havre lattice constants close to Ge was demonstrated.
