ABSTRACT
We report pseudodielectric-function spectra from 1.5 to 6.0 eV of InAsxSb1-x ternary alloys obtained by spectroscopic ellipsometry. Energies of the E1, E1+Δ1, E0′, E0′+Δ0′, E2, E2+Δ2, E2′, E2′+Δ2, and E1′ critical points (CPs) were obtained from numerically calculated second derivatives, and identifications established by band-structure calculations using the linear augmented Slater-type orbital method. The E2, E2+Δ2, E2′, and E2′+Δ2 CP structures cross with increasing As-composition. Two saddle-point transitions, Δ5cu-Δ5vu and Δ5cl-Δ5vu, are found for InSb.
