The band offsets between an amorphous LaAl O3 dielectric prepared by molecular-beam deposition and a n -type In0.53 Ga0.47 As (001) layer have been measured using synchrotron radiation photoemission spectroscopy. The valence and conduction band offsets at the postdeposition annealed LaAl O3 InGaAs interface are 3.1±0.1 and 2.35±0.2 eV, respectively. The band gap of LaAl O3, as determined by Al 2p and O 1s core level energy loss spectra, is 6.2±0.1 eV. Within the resolution of the medium energy ion scattering technique, no interfacial oxide layer is seen between the InGaAs and the 3.6 nm thick amorphous LaAl O3.
