Non-equilibrium electron distributions and energy loss rate in a metal-organic chemical vapor deposition-grown InxGa1-xAs1-yNy(x=0.03 and y=0.01) epilayer on GaAs substrate have been studied by picosecond Raman spectroscopy. It is demonstrated that for electron density napproximately equals 1018cm-3, electron distributions can be described very well by Fermi-Dirac distributions with electron temperatures substantially higher than the lattice temperature. From the measurement of electron temperature as a function of the pulse width of excitation laser, the energy loss rate in InxGa1-xAs1-yNy is estimated to be 64 meV/ps. These experimental results are compared with those of GaAs.
