|摘要:||The optical properties of GaAs nano-wires grown on shallow-trench-patterned Si(001) substrates were investigated by cathodoluminescence. The results showed that when the trench width ranges from 80 to 100 nm, the emission efficiency of GaAs can be enhanced and is stronger than that of a homogeneously grown epilayer. The suppression of non-radiative centers is attributed to the trapping of both threading dislocations and planar defects at the trench sidewalls. This approach demonstrates the feasibility of growing nano-scaled GaAs-based optoelectronic devices on Si substrates.|
