The structural relaxation of irradiated III-V compound semiconductors InP, GaAs and InAs arising from room temperature annealing has been studied using perturbed angular correlation spectroscopy. Amorphous zones were produced by MeV Ge ion implantation in single crystal substrates at liquid nitrogen temperature. These amorphous zones were found to relax continuously to a disordered state of lower energy with characteristic relaxation times of a few hours to a few days which are described by a...[Show more]
