Abstract

Ternary alloy GaInSb crystals are grown from a melt in the horizontal Bridgman configuration for high (70%) and low (30%) Ga compositions. Each composition is compared to ideal and regular solution model predictions. Good agreement is found between the regular solution model and experimental observations. However, this agreement is quite sensitive to the starting proportions of the constituent elements.
