The band-gap energy (Eg) of metalorganic vapor phase epitaxially (MOVPE) grown Ga0.5In0.5P lattice matched to (001) GaAs is presented as a function of a wide range of V/III ratios and growth temperatures. Photoluminescence, Raman scattering spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and impurity diffusion were used to investigate this functional relationship. Two pieces of evidence are shown which demonstrate that MOVPE Ga0.5In0.5P epitaxial layers with ‘‘abnormal’’ Eg∼1.85 eV and ‘‘normal’’ Eg∼1.9 eV correspond to an ordered and a random (Ga,In) distribution on column III sublattices, respectively. In an ordered state, a sequence of (110) planes...GaGaInInGaGaInIn...in the [110] direction is the most probable distribution.
