The influence of post-growth annealing on the microstructure and photoluminescence (PL) of GaAsBi alloys grown on (3 1 1)B GaAs is analyzed. Conventional transmission electron microscopy (TEM) performed on as-grown samples evidence the presence of structural defects and a mosaic structure in the GaAsBi layer. A sequence of stacking faults at regions close to the GaAs/GaAsBi interface are observed in high resolution TEM images. After annealing at 473 K during 3 h the mosaic structure disappears, the presence of defects is reduced and the PL peak intensely enhances. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
