Abstract

Resolved critical point structures in Schottky-barrier electroreflectance spectra of Ga3dV-sp3 conduction band transitions in the 20-22-eV range provide a direct proof that the L6C equivalent minima lie approximately 170±30 meVbelow the X6C minima in GaAs. This ordering, opposite to that assumed and apparently supported by previous experiments, is in fact consistent with these experiments and provides natural explanations for many formerly puzzling features of GaAs.
