Title
(EN) Sputter epitaxy of component-quality silicon-germanium heterostructures
Abstract
(EN)
The sputter epitaxy process allows the production of epitaxial heterostructures of Si, Ge and Si1-xGex alloys. The semiconductor characteristics of Si/Ge heterostructures doped in situ from the gas phase or from solid targets are comparable with those which can be synthesised through molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) or ultrahigh vacuum chemical vapour deposition (UHV-CVD). In particular, high charge carrier mobility levels can be attained in modulation-doped biased Si or Ge quantum wells as a basis for quantum-Hall effect structures and MODFETs. The sputter epitaxy process can be used for all possible types of electronic and opto-electronic components consisting of Si/Ge heterostructures.
