Abstract

Absorption data on strained GaAs1−xPx-GaAs superlattices (SL, 128-period, barrier size LB≈75 Å, quantum-well size Lz≈75 Å, alloy composition x≈0.25) are presented in the range 0–10 kbars. The absorption curves obtained show no exciton show no exciton peaks such as seen in lattice- matched AlxGa1−xAs-GaAs SL's, and the pressure coefficient decreases from 11.5 meV/kbar to ≈ 10.5 meV/kbar in the wells and ≈6.5 meV/kbar at energies approaching and above the barrier energies. This behavior is attributed to the fluctuations in strain caused by the alloy disorder, and clustering, of the barriers.
