The luminescence properties of In doped GaSb single crystals have been studied by the cathodoluminescence (CL) technique in the scanning electron microscope. It has been found that indium induces a certain reduction on the native acceptor concentration in contrast to what occurs with other isoelectronic dopants (e.g. aluminium). Large In concentrations lead to the formation of the ternary compound In_xGa_(1-x)Sb as revealed by CL spectra and x-ray measurements. In particular, a luminescence band and x-ray diffraction peaks observed in highly doped samples are attributed to the presence of In_xGa_(1-x)Sb.
