Abstract : Compound semiconductors of GaAs and (GaAl) As were studies for optical and microwave applications. Two growth processes were employed for device fabrication: (1) the liquid-phase epitaxy (LPE) and (2) the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). The procedure for LPE growth was well established in the laboratory. On the other hand, the MBE growth process required a considerable amount of effort to establish the growth procedure and optimize the growth conditions. (Author)
