Abstract : The invention embodies the deposition of gallium phosphide films by a four-temperature-zone technique under varying conditions which shifts the optical absorption edge. The gallium phosphide films are deposited onto a substrate held at a particular set temperature during deposition. GaP films deposited with the substrate held at different set temperatures between about 150C and about 425C will possess different absorption curves. Vacuum-annealing such deposited films will further change the absorption edge.
