Abstract

Three series of 1 mu m thick Ga1-xMnxAs films with different Mn composition have been characterized using high-resolution x-ray diffraction (HRXRD). The results show that they are highly-crystalline and the growth is reproducible. The Mn compositions have also been measured by other popular methods: in situ ion gauge, x-ray fluorescence (XRF), electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). The results show that the Mn concentrations measured by different methods are different and the difference between them becomes smaller with increasing Mn content.
