Abstract: In this work we report the defect structure of GaAs layers grown on Si (001) substrates by atomic layer molecular beam epitaxy at 350 °C and conventional molecular beam epitaxy at 580 °C, investigated by transmission electron microscopy. It is found that the GaAs layers grown at 580 °C show high threading dislocation densities, whilst the majority defect types in the GaAs layers grown at 350 °C are stacking faults and microtwins. These results can be explained by taking into account that the mobility of partial dislocations depends on both the stress in the epitaxial layer and the growth temperature. According to this dependence, a transition from dissociated threading dislocations at a low temperature (350 °C) to perfect threading dislocations at a high temperature (580 °C) can be expected.
