III-V Compounds

This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.


Most III-V compounds crystallize in the zinc blende structure, which has a primitive cell with two atoms, A and B, forming a FCC lattice for each of them.

All the commercial semiconducting light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes (LDs) are currently made of III-V compound thin films produced by the metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) technique. These III-V compounds can be grouped into the families of the antimonides, arsenides, phosphides and nitrides. The first three have mainly a cubic lattice structure, while the nitrides have a hexagonal lattice structure.
