Carbon atoms are used as a p-type dopant for modulation-doped p-AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructures grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Carbon impurities are effectively doped into AlGaAs layers by flow-rate modulation epitaxy, which is a modified method of metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. A mobility of 6.0×104 cm2/V·s is obtained at 13 K for a sheet carrier concentration of 4.1×1011 cm-2, indicating that a high quality two-dimensional hole gas is realized by abrupt heterointerfaces and sharp carbon doping profiles.
