Abstract

Second-harmonic generation and linear photomodulation are combined to study free-charge trapping mechanisms at ZnSe–GaAs(001) heterointerfaces. The variation of second-harmonic intensity as a function of charged-trap density at the buried junction is analyzed quantitatively and used with time-dependent measurements to determine interfacial charge-trap lifetimes.
