We report the growth by molecular beam epitaxy of Ga Bix As1-x epilayers on (311) B GaAs substrates. We use high-resolution x-ray diffraction (HRXRD), transmission electron microscopy, and Z -contrast imaging to characterize the structural properties of the as-grown material. We find that the incorporation of Bi into the GaBiAs alloy, as determined by HRXRD, is sizably larger in the (311) B epilayers than in (001) epilayers, giving rise to reduced band-gap energies as obtained by optical transmission spectroscopy. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
