Kawasaki, Jason K. ; Timm, Rainer LU orcid ; Buehl, Trevor E. ; Lundgren, Edvin LU ; Mikkelsen, Anders LU ; Gossard, Arthur C. and Palmstrom, Chris J. (2011) 27th North American Molecular Beam Epitaxy Conference of the American-Vacuum-Society 29(3). p.03-104
Abstract
The growth and atomic/electronic structure of molecular beam epitaxy-grown ErAs nanoparticles and nanorods embedded within a GaAs matrix are examined for the first time via cross-sectional scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. Cross sections enable the interrogation of the internal structure and are well suited for studying embedded nanostructures. The early stages of embedded ErAs nanostructure growth are examined via these techniques and compared with previous cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy work. Tunneling spectroscopy I(V) for both ErAs nanoparticles and nanorods was also performed, demonstrating that both nanostructures are semimetallic. (C) 2011 American Vacuum Society.
