Can misfit dislocations be located above the interface of InAs/GaAs (001) epitaxial quantum dots?
InAs/GaAs(001) quantum dots grown by droplet epitaxy were investigated using electron microscopy. Misfit dislocations in relaxed InAs/GaAs(001) islands were found to be located approximately 2 nm above the crystalline sample surface, which provides an impression that the misfit dislocations did not form at the island/substrate interface. However, detailed microscopy data analysis indicates that the observation is in fact an artefact caused by the surface oxidation of the material that resulted...[Show more]
