Abstract

The bond-length strain in a series of strained, buried Ga1-xInxAs thin-alloy films grown coherently on InP(001) has been determined by high-resolution extended x-ray absorption fine-structure measurements. Comparison with a random-cluster calculation demonstrates that the external strain imposed by pseudomorphic growth opposes the natural bond-length distortions due to alloying.
