Abstract
Mixed Crystals of Si1-xGex (x < 0.05) grown by the method of zone melting have been studied by Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) in recoil. The contribution of Ge-bulk plasmon spectrum was revealed in the plasmon spectra of Mixed Crystals, and the conclusion has been made that an essential part of Ge atoms are included into Ge clusters. Plasma diagnostics of clusters in SiGe alloys is suggested on the basis of EEL spectroscopy.
