Abstract

The objective of this work was to study by transmission electron microscopy the lattice defects in GaAs bulk crystals and heterostructures formed by In diffusion. In such samples hints for the existence of superconductivity have been found. Indium was found to move more than 100 micrometer into bulk GaAs during 1 h annealing at 550 °C (such conditions are typical for molecular beam epitaxy growth on GaAs wafers.) This rapid diffusion is accompanied by the creation of dislocation networks and metallic In droplets that show evidence for lattice strain.
