Abstract: Low-temperature 10 K photoluminescence measurements of GaAs1−xNx epitaxial layers grown on GaAs reveal an anomalous second peak in solid-source molecular beam epitaxy. Rapid thermal annealing RTA of a specific GaAsN sample reveals a lower energy peak which redshifts and a higher energy peak which blueshifts under increasing annealing temperature. The band-anticrossing model is used to identify the origins of the two peaks and we propose a model to explain the RTA observations by the concept of increased confinement in areas of higher N concentrations by trapped N localized states. The peak is due to the accumulation of N content near the GaAs/GaAsN interface. Hence, this abnormal annealing behavior occurs in layers with nonuniform N concentration at the GaAsN/GaAs interface.
