Aperiodic SiSn/Si Multilayers for Thermoelectric Applications.
J. Cryst. Growth 392 (2014), 49-51

We report on novel defect-free SiSn/Si heterostructures grown pseudomorphically on Si(001) substrates using temperature-modulated molecular beam epitaxy. This approach results in a sustainable epitaxial growth for SiSn/Si multilayers. Transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction manifest that the SiSn layers possess a diamond lattice structure. X-ray diffraction reveals up to 9.5 at.% Sn in the crystal lattice of the SiSn layers.

Keywords: composition; epilayers; growth; SiGe; thermoelectrics; transmission electron microscopy; X-ray diffraction
