Abstract / Description:We have investigated growth and overgrowth of Ge hut cluster islands.
In a single island layer, free-standing hut clusters intermix only
slowly with Si. When the islands are grown in a vertical stack, the
critical thickness for island formation is reduced and intermixing is
strongly increased where buried islands are present. Only one island
layer contributes to the photoluminescence (PL) signal, since carriers
tunnel to the island layer which is the lowest in energy before
recombining. Furthermore, hut cluster islands which were overgrown with
Si at reduced temperatures are investigated. We show that at low
capping temperatures, the island-related photoluminescence peak shifts
below the band gap of Ge and saturates at around 0.616 eV (2.01 mum).
