TlInGaAs quaternary alloy layers were grown on InP substrates by gas-source molecular-beam epitaxy. Refractive index dispersions were determined at the temperature range of 300–340 K in the photon-energy region below and a little above the direct bandedge E0 by the optical reflectance measurements. The temperature dependence of the refractive index was analyzed with the first-order Sellmeier equation. The temperature dependence of the E0 edge was also determined by the absorption measurements. It was found that the temperature coefficients of both refractive index and E0 edge of TlInGaAs are much smaller than those for InGaAs. These results facilitate the fabrication of the temperature-stable-wavelength optoelectronic devices using this alloy system. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
