Title: Diffuse x-ray scattering from misfit and threading dislocations in PbTe/BaF{sub 2}/Si(111) thin layers

Abstract

Diffuse x-ray scattering from epitaxial PbTe layers on Si(111) is analyzed both theoretically and experimentally. Reciprocal-space maps and x-ray diffraction profiles are measured and simulated for symmetrical and asymmetrical diffractions as well. The intensity distribution of diffusively scattered radiation is simulated within the statistical theory of x-ray scattering. Both types of expected defects--misfit and threading dislocations--are discussed. Comparing simulated maps to measured ones we can distinguish between contributions arising from misfit and threading dislocations. In the case of PbTe thin layers, the majority diffuse scattering comes from misfit dislocations.
