AlGaAs / GaAs Heterostructure

AlGaAs / GaAs heterostructure can be offered by PAM-XIAMEN. Aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs), as an important optoelectronic basic material, is widely used in high-speed electronic devices and infrared detectors. The quality of the AlGaAs material, especially the quality of the surface directly affects the optoelectronic properties of the fabricated device.

2. About AlGaAs Material

Aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) material, as a typical representative of III-V compound semiconductors, has been widely studied and applied due to its high carrier mobility, tunable composition, and similar lattice to GaAs. One of the typical applications is the use of molecular beam epitaxy of GaAs / AlGaAs heterostructure growth to modulate doped two-dimensional electron gas materials. High-speed microelectronic devices (HEMT, PHEMT) based on high-quality two-dimensional electron gas structure, such as high electron mobility transistors, are widely used in ultra-high-speed, ultra-high-frequency, low-noise microelectronic devices and circuits.

At the same time, it has many potential applications in sensors and new lasers used in next-generation optical communication and data transmission. Therefore, the requirements for the preparation quality of AlGaAs thin films, AlGaAs quantum dots, and AlGaAs quantum wells are getting higher and higher, just like the preparation technology requirements of Si materials are getting higher and higher with the progress of microelectronics technology. In addition, the research on the growth process and surface microstructure of high-quality AlGaAs with different compositions is of great significance for the growth of high-quality superlattices. Therefore, fundamental research work on AlGaAs surfaces is valuable.

AlGaAs materials have the advantage of being easy to integrate laser diodes and other optical devices, which enable AlGaAs / GaAs heterostructure laser with highly integrated designs of ultra-small size, which can effectively reduce the size and weight of components to meet practical applications.
