The properties of deep levels found in Te-doped AlInP grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition have been studied. By using pn-junction structure, both minority- and majority-carrier traps can be observed. Two deep levels are found in Te-doped AlInP: one majority-carrier trap and one minority-carrier trap. The activation energies of majority- and minority-carrier traps are 0.24±0.05 and 0.25±0.03 eV, respectively. The majority-carrier trap is uniformly distributed, indicating that this level belongs to some kind of bulk defect.
