Abstract
CdTe(111)B layers have been grown on Si(001) and its vicinal surface. Formation of double domains and twins is found to be related to the surface structure of the Si(001) substrate. The tilt angle and tilt direction of the misoriented Si(001) substrate play an important role in suppressing the formation of double domains and twins. A double-domain and twinned CdTe(111)B layer is always obtained, when it is grown on nominal Si(001) substrate. However, by optimizing the tilt parameters, one can consistently obtain single-domain and twin-free CdTe(111)B layers grown on slightly misoriented Si(001) substrates.
