The early stages of the molecular beam epitaxial growth of InxGa1-xAs on GaAs have been studied with reflection high-energy electron diffraction. Measurement of the in-plane surface lattice constant as a function of film thickness clearly showed a pseudomorphic to incoherent transition. Changes in the diffraction streaks indicated a corresponding two- to three-dimensional growth transition. The results are compared with various models of dislocation nucleation and good support is found for heterogeneous misfit accommodation by 60° dislocations.
