By combining a thin compliant Si epitaxial layer (∼6 nm) with SiGe buffer (10-15 nm), we demonstrated a high-quality Ge film (∼150 nm) prepared by two-step growth. Without using high-temperature cyclic anneal, Ge films with smooth surface (root mean square = ∼0.67 nm) and low dislocation density (4 × 106 cm-2) have been produced. The Si buffer locally enhances the tensile strain (e = 0.63%) in Ge while slightly suppressing the dark current by half to 0.12 μA (with circular ring area = 1230 μm2 and spacing = 2 μm). A lateral p-i-n Ge photodetector has been demonstrated with enhanced photoresponse of ∼190 mA/W at 1520 nm and a 3-dB bandwidth of 5.2 GHz at 1 V. © 2007 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Electron Device Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82497||ISSN:||07413106||DOI:||10.1109/LED.2007.906814|
