The GaAs epilayer was grown at low temperature (LT. 250.deg. C) by molecular beam epitaxy. The properties of the LTT GaAs, before and after Rapid Thermal Annealing(RTA), were analyzed by Reflection of High Energy Electron Diffraction (RHEED), Double Crystal X-ray(DCX), Raman spectroscopy, PL and Photo-Induced Current Transient Spectroscopy (PICTS). The LT GaAs before RTA, was analyzed by RHEED and DCX, with a result of an improved surface morphology under a relatively As-rich(As/Ga ratio :28) condition, and of an increased lattics parameter of 1.1 1.7% in comparison with a GaAs substrate. However DCX and Raman spectroscopy revealed that the expanded lattics parameter and the crystallinity of LT GaAs could be recovered after RTA. On the other hand, PL spectra indicated that LT GaAs after RTA showed low optical sensitivity unlike High Temperature(HT) GaAs, and that its surface morphology and crystallinity were corresponded with those of HT GaAs. Finally PICTS spectra proved the fact that low sensitivity of LT GaAs was due to the deep level defects (Ec-0.85eV) which were strogly formed by raising RTA temperature to 750.deg. C.
