Abstract

Unstrained Ga0.64In0.36As0.84Sb0.16/InP single quantum-well structures were grown on InP substrates by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. Transmission electron microscopy and temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) measurements were performed. The valence-band offset of the GaInAsSb/ InP heterojunction was estimated by the dependence of PL peak energy on the well width at 8 K. We estimated the valence-band offset to be 70±5% of the band-gap difference for the Ga0.64In0.36As0.84Sb0.16/InP heterostructure.
