Provide a photograph of yourself and a brief self-instruction (3N4 sentences about your background, current status and studyfresearch interest) 2. Many III-V compound semiconductors such as GaAs and InP have two cleavage planes (110) and (110). You can cut the crystal along these two planes to create mirror-like facets. This is how semiconductor lasers are fabricated (i.e. using the cleaved planes as reflecting mirrors). For a (211) GaAs wafer, find (a) the cleavage plane(s) that can cut through the (211) wafer with a mirror-like facet, (b) the plane that is normal to both the (211) plane and the cleavage plane(s) in (a). The planes you find in (a) and (b) are normally the “major flat” and “minor fla ” of an otherwise circular wafer. ANS: (a) The two cleavage planes belong to the family of plane {110}. The planes of the {110} are (110), (110), (101), (101), (011). (011) The cleavage plane (abc) with (211) wafer should be perpendicular to (211) plane as well. 9 [a, b, c] ' [2,1, 1] I 0, and (abc)E{110} [a, b, c] ' [2, 1, 1] : 2a+b+c : 0 (a, b, c: integer) Among possible sets of (a, b, 0), therefore, the cleavage plane is (01T) or (0T 1) (b) Suppose the other plane (a’b'c') is normal to both (211) and (011) (or (011)), then this plane can be obtained by 1' j k :> [a'b'c']=[01T]><[211]= 0 1 —1=2i—2}'—2k(i,j,k:basis) 2 1 1 Thus the one of the normal plane is(1TT), or equivalently (T11). a a IR-G 3.
