Two metallorganic phosphorous precursors, bisphosphinoethane (BPE) and tertiarybutyl phosphine (TBP), were studied. For indium phosphide (InP) grown using BPE, the measured room temperature and 77K Hall mobilities were 4,200 and 22,000 cm2/Vs, with carrierdensities 5.7E15 and 4.0E15 cm−3, respectively. For InP grown using TBP, the measured room temperature and 77K Hall mobilities were 4,400 and 26,000 cm2/Vs, with carrier densities 6.4E15 and 5.1E15 cm−3, respectively. An impurity build-up at the substrate interface is responsible for the relatively low mobility in the adjacent epitaxial layers. SIMS analysis showed that S and Si are the primary impurities measured in films grown with BPE and TBP, respectively; impurity concentrations increasedwith cracking temperature. The full width at half maximum (FWHM) of donor bound exciton peaks measured by 2.2K photoluminescence for InP grown by BPE and TBP were 0.84 and 1.28 meV, respectively.
