    Gallium arsenide and indium arsenide layers have been grown by the Atomic Layer Epitaxy method (ALE) using gallium and indium chlorides and arsenic hydride as source materials. The gallium arsenide layers grown are unintentionally doped to a level of $GREG 1017 cm-3. Carrier concentration and mobility vary with growth parameters. Mobilities up to 75 % of the theoretical values for materials with such carrier concentrations are measured. For GaAs, the RBS/channeling technique gives minimum yield of 4 % compared to the corresponding random backscattering spectrum, indicating good crystalline quality. This is further confirmed by observation of a sharp photoluminescence peak originating from GaAs/InAs/GaAs single quantum well a few monolayers thick. Peak width of 12 meV is measured at 12 K.
