Reflectance anisotropy spectroscopy (RAS) has been used to monitor the formation and development of InAs islands grown onto GaAs(001) substrates in real time. This is possible because the signal at a photon energy of 4.0 eV is mainly sensitive to the thickness of the continuous inter-island wetting layer in the thickness range of interest. This makes it possible, for the first time, to follow the partition of material between the wetting layer and islands. Monitoring the deposition of 2 monolayers of material at a fixed growth temperature of 475°C reveals important details of the growth process, such as the fact that the fraction of the incident flux incorporated immediately into the islands is largely insensitive to growth rate.
