Dilute nitride InGaAsN has shown potential application in heteroj unction bipolar transistors (HBTs) on GaAs substrates with low turn-on voltage. The application is based on two features of InGaAsN: firstly, InGaAsN can be lattice-matched to GaAs; secondly, the incorporation of small amounts of N into (In)GaAs reduces the band gap drastically. Hence, the growth and characterization of (In)GaAsN, especially p-type InGaAsN were investigated in this thesis, due to its potential usage in n-p-n HBT devices as the base layer.
