We present a micro-Raman study of alterations in InGaAs/InP epilayers after rapid thermal annealing. Defects consisting of protruding material with typical dimensions of a few microns can be observed on the surface of the annealed samples. Micro-Raman measurements on these defects show that they consist of InxGa1-xP alloys, suggesting that phosphorus diffusion from the InP substrate occurs during the RTA cycle. The defect-free region of the epilayer is also altered leading to the formation of an In1-xGaxAs1-yPy quaternary alloy.
