    1. Front Cover: Physics of nitride-based nanostructured light-emitting devices (Phys. Status Solidi B 8/2011)

      D. Hommel, J. Gutowski and F. Jahnke

      Article first published online: 28 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201190023

      In a series of 12 articles, the physics of nitride-based nanostructured light-emitting devices is presented in this issue. Some of the topics are illustrated on the cover: The use of a tight-binding model in combination with many-particle methods to calculate absorption and gain spectra of nitridebased quantum-dot (QD) systems is discussed by Seebeck et al. (pp. 1871–1878), one illustration of their results is the non-parabolic dispersion of electrons in an InGaN wetting layer (upper left graph). The surface morphology of GaN and InGaN layers, shown in the upper right graph, is the topic of the article by Falta et al. (pp. 1800–1809). Figge et al. (pp. 1765–1776) report on the realization of InGaN QD based LEDs for operation from the blue to amber spectral region (picture on the lower left). Furthermore, the creation of monolithic GaN-based airpost pillar microcavities (MCs) with embedded InGaN QDs is discussed (lower right graph) with respect to their epitaxial fabrication (Kruse et al., pp. 1748–1755) and their optical properties (Sebald et al., pp. 1756–1764). The detected mode spectra are compared with calculations by Florian et al. (pp. 1867–1870).

    1. Back Cover: Significantly different contamination of atomically clean Si(001) when investigated by XPS and AES (Phys. Status Solidi B 8/2011)

      Nicoleta G. Gheorghe, George A. Lungu, Ruxandra M. Costescu and Cristian M. Teodorescu

      Article first published online: 28 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201190024

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Recently, the c(4 × 2) reconstruction of the technologically highly important Si(001) surface was evidenced at low temperatures (below 200 K). High-resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) revealed a wide variety of surface states, whereas a study by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) of the in situ oxidation in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) revealed the high reactivity of the step edges. However, to date no in situ survey of the contamination of ultraclean Si(001) was published by using the standard methods in surface science: XPS and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), although it was recognised that the electron beam may strongly affect the surface reconstruction in low energy electron diffraction (LEED) experiments. Teodorescu et al. (pp. 1919–1924) present a comparative survey of the in situ contamination of atomically clean Si(001) followed by AES and XPS. The cover images show LEED patterns obtained for clean Si(001) immediately after preparation (top row) and after a 6-hours investigation by AES and a short RHEED analysis (bottom row).
