The authors report the formation of an interfacial misfit (IMF) array in the growth of relaxed GaAs bulk layers on a (001) GaSb surface. Under specific conditions, the high quality IMF array has a period of 5.6 nm and can accommodate the 7.78% tensile GaAs/GaSb lattice mismatch. The misfit site is identified as a 90° edge dislocation using Burger’s circuit theory and confirmed by high-resolution cross-section transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images. The resulting GaAs bulk material is both strain-free and highly crystalline. Plan-view TEM images show threading dislocation density of ∼3×106/cm2. This material demonstration will enable novel device structures including an embedded GaSb active region in GaAs device matrix.
