    Abstract

    Room temperature absorption spectra of low temperature molecular beam epitaxy grown GaAs (LT-GaAs) and AlGaAs (LT-AlGaAs) are reported. We performed measurements in an extended spectral range from 0.8 eV to photon energies of 2.8 eV far above the band gap. For as-grown LT-materials, the absorption coefficients at the band gap are twice as high as for high temperature grown materials. By annealing the samples, we obtained a drastic reduced absorption coefficient below as well as above the band gap. We observed absorption changes up to 17 000 cm(-1) for LT-GaAs and 9000 cm(-1) for LT-AlGaAs taking place in a two phase process. (C) 1996 American Institute of Physics.
