    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Molecular beam epitaxy growth for InSb1-xBix thin films on (100) GaAs substrates is reported. Successful Bi incorporation for 2% is achieved, and up to 70% of the incorporated Bi atoms are at substitutional sites. The effects of growth parameters on Bi incorporation and surface morphology are studied. Strong In and Ga inter-diffusion induced by Bi incorporation is observed and discussed.
