Paper Abstract

The development of the novel heavy metal fluoride fibers with the potential for substantially reduced losses over silica fibers presents the need for sources and detectors that are specifically designed for the 2 to 4 pm mid-infrared spectral region. The III-V quaternary InxGa1-xAsySb1-y is a promising material in this regard, with an energy gap range of 1.8 to 4.2 μm. 1.1quidphase epitaxy has been used to grow epitaxial layers on InAs substrates. Compositions with energy gaps near 2 μm and near 3.5 μm have been obtained.
