FIG. 1.

Bright-field transmission electron micrograph of the superlattice. The ⟨0001⟩ growth direction is from bottom to top. (a) Multibeam image of region containing the superlattice. (b) Enlargement of the rectangular box showing the graded nature of the barrier. The layers appear with brighter contrast.
