Abstract : A method is disclosed for the incorporation of relatively high vapor pressure elements into good quality GaAs at extremely low T(sub s) using the migration enhanced epitaxy technique. Zinc was doped in GaAs material grown at a low T, of 120 deg C. Zinc may thus be used as a p-type dopant replacing more toxic Be. Similarly, other high vapor pressure elements can be incorporated much more efficiently into the material grown at low T(sub s).
