Photoluminescence and Hall measurements are reported on Ge doped InGaAs layers lattice matched to InP. Ge doping of these samples results in highly compensated material, with the highest Ge content sample giving a p type conductivity with carrier concentration of 5 ×1017 cm-3. Low temperature PL spectra of these samples show a broad peak from 0.55 to 0.77 eV due to Ge. The peak of luminescence shifts to lower energy with increasing Ge content. The peak position shifts to higher energy with increasing excitation like in a D-A pair transition. The PL spectra have been explained on the basis of a model which assumes tail states near the band edges due to disorder produced by the presence of Ge in the lattice.
