InP vapor phase epitaxial layers with net donor concentrations in the 8×1014 to 3×1016 cm-3 range have been reproducibly grown with the In/HCl/PH3/H2 reactant system. Room temperature electron mobilities varied from 1500 to 3500 cm2/V·s. Photoluminescence measurements at 77 K indicated transitions at 1.41, 1.37 and 1.33 eV in the high purity samples. The relative photoluminescence intensity ratio I(1.41)/I(1.37) depended upon epitaxial growth conditions. In some of the VPE layers, a PL transition with a peak at 1.19 eV was observed. Deep level transient spectroscopy measurements were performed on as-grown, doped and electron irradiated VPE material. The relationship between deep level spectra and residual impurities was examined.
