Semi-Insulating InP is used in microelectronics devices and integrated opto-electronic circuits. The Chinese InP research team used a direct P-injection synthesis and LEC crystal growth method to prepare polycrystalline InP and to grow the undoped InP and Fe-doped SI-InP single crystal in the same puller. We can get very low concentration silicon in the ingots by using this method. And in the InP crystal the main impurity is silicon, which acts as a shallow donor in the crystal. The undoped InP has been found to be annealed into SI material around 900°C. The Chinese InP research team present a model to explain the possible mechanisms of the Semi-Insulating behavior of bulk InP material. The physical properties of SI-InP have been studied. We have combined a variety of techniques such as FT-IR, PICTS, Hall, TDH, PL, PAS, and GDMS to investigate SI-InP. Most of the data can be explained by this model. Furthermore we compared the results of the MOCVD material, which grow on the annealed undoped SI-InP and on Fe-doped SI-InP.
