Infrared Studies of GaN1-xPx Ternary Alloys


Article Preview

Infrared reflectivity measurements of GaN1-xPx alloys and quantitative fittings using Lorentz model have been carried out. In the GaN1-xPx alloys, two competitive mechanisms that determine the carrier concentration have been put forward. The one is from the effect of the isoelectronic traps which decrease the carrier concentration while the other is from the effect of defects which increase the carrier concentration. The calculated results of imaginary part of the elastivity of GaN and GaN1-xPx alloys show that the longitudinal optical phonon-plasmon (LPP) modes shift to high frequency direction and its linewidth gradually broadens with increasing carrier concentration in GaN1-xPx, indicating that the coupling of LPP modes gradually enhances and the damping of LPP modes gradually augments.
