Paper Abstract

Room temperature photoreflectance (PR) was used to investigate the energy gaps transition, the surface state densities and the surface barrier height of InxAlyGa1-x-yAs, in a series of epitaxial surface intrinsic-n+ structures with different Al concentration. Features of Franz-Keldysh oscillations originating from the built-in electric field in the intrinsic top layer were observed. Based on the thermionic emission theory and current-transport theory, the surface state density can be determined from the square of maximum electric field as a function of various pump beam flux intensities.
