The thermal emission rate of dominant traps in molecular beam epitaxial n- and p-type AlGaAs subjected to Ar-ion beam etching has been studied by deep level transient spectroscopy. Emission signatures were determined and compared with results obtained by other authors for irradiation induced and grown-in defects in GaAs and AlGaAs. The most significant result of this study is the observation that the process-induced defects in n- as well as p-type AlGaAs exhibit emission signatures, which are characteristic of native defects found in GaAs. The effect is discussed in terms of a compensation effect and related band bending.
