1 Quantum wells due to ordering in GaInPCuPt ordering results in a reduction of the band-gap energy of GaInP. Thus, heterostructures and quantum wells can be produced by simply varying the order parameter, without changing the solid composition. Changes in the order parameter can be induced by changes in growth conditions. The disorder...Band-gap energy; Growth temperature; Quantum wells1998-12-28
