GaP/InP strained-layer superlattices (SLS) grown on GaAs substrates are a novel structure with a large lattice mismatch symmetrically shared (+ 3 . 7 (GaP) -3 . 6 (InP)). We present growth and characterization of two types of GaP/InP based heterostructures: i) isolated SLSs and ii) a SLS based QW confined by A1GaAs barriers. Growth by Atomic Layer MBE has allowed to combine P- and As-containing materials in a controllable way preserving flat interfaces at low substrate temperatures. Optical characterization oftheheterostructures ispresented and correlated with akp model obtaining the first estimation for the conduction band offset at the GaP/InP heteroj unction. All superlattices studied have been found to be spatially direct (type I) being this feature very promising for their use as active layer in a semiconductor QW laser. I.
