Modulated molecular beam epitaxy (MMBE) has been demonstrated to be useful in controlling group-V alloys such as InAsxSb1-x and AlAsxSb1-x. Further studies of the MMBE grown InAsxSb1-x ordered alloys and InAs/InAsxSb1-x superlattices by using cross-sectional scanning tunneling microscopy show well defined interfaces between InAsxSb1-x ordered alloys and InAs. Clear composition modulation is observed in the InAsxSb1-x ordered alloy layers. Transmission electron diffraction and microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and low temperature photoluminescence experiments show no obvious sign of CuPt orderings. These results suggest that MMBE provides a possible means to bypass the ordering problem of InAsxSb1-x random alloys.
