I have investigated the effect of Bi incorporation on InPBi layers grown by liquid phase epitaxial technique. High resolution x-ray diffraction (HRXRD) patterns show high crystalline quality and secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) technique is used to get the amount of Bi incorporated into the layer ~1.25 %. 10 K Photoluminescence is clearly resolved that maximum band gap reduction of 20 meV.
