AbstractPseudomorphically strained epitaxial films of the ternary alloy GaNyAs1-y have been grown on GaAs(100) with y ranging from 0 to 0.05. The optical phonon Raman spectrum of the alloy displays a two-mode behavior. The GaAs-like first order modes are represented at y = 0.05 by the strong longitudinal optic (LO1) mode at 288.5 cm-1 and the weaker transverse optic (TO1) mode at 268.3 cm-1, while the GaN-like LO2 mode is observed at 474.8 cm-1. Two very broad disorder-induced acoustic bands are evident at 80 and 170 cm-1 due to atomic disorder within the crystalline network. Raman studies show that as the nitrogen concentration increases, the GaAs-like LO1 band shifts linearly towards lower wavenumber while the GaN-like LO2 phonon band displays a sub-linear increase in wavenumber. Raman results for the unstrained quaternary alloy In0.06Ga0.94N0.02As0.98 are compared with those of GaN0.02As0.98.
