Time decay measurements of the Er3+ luminescent transition were performed in In1-xGaxP epitaxial layers (x = 0-1). The luminescence kinetics of 0.8eV luminescent band are given by a superposition of exponential decay components. Polarization time decay measurements support the model of a family of anisotropic Er-related centers possessing different symmetry. A tentative model for such centers is discussed.
