The optimization of the electronic properties of InGaP/GaAs MQWs, to be inserted in multilayers heterostructure for novel photovoltaic devices, was performed by structural, optical and photoelectrical measurements. Different sequences of nominally undoped InGaP and GaAs alternated layers were grown by low-pressure metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy, employing tertiarybutylarsine and tertiarybutylphosphine as metalorganic precursors for the V-group elements. In order to minimize the As/P exchange effect, the interface In segregation, and to control the whole lattice matching, single and multi-quantum wells (MQWs) with different: (i) periods, (ii) well widths, (iii) growth temperatures, (iv) gas-switching sequences at the interfaces and (v) indium concentrations in the InGaP alloy, were prepared and investigated. The interface sharpness and the compositional fluctuation of thick MQW region containing up to 40 …
