We have studied the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) growth of GaAsSb on GaAs substrates. The optical properties and composition of GaAsSb layer strongly depend on the growth temperature, the Ga growth rate, and the As and Sb fluxes and their ratios. We also report on two GaAsSb-GaAs photodiode structures operating at 1.3 μm. The peak quantum efficiency was 54% for the GaAsSb resonant-cavity-enhanced (RCE) p-i-n photodiode and 36% for the RCE GaAsSb avalanche photodiode (APD) with separate absorption, charge, and multiplication regions (SACM). At 90% of the breakdown, the dark current of the SACM APD was 5 nA. The GaAsSb SACM APD also exhibited very low multiplication noise and keff was approximately 0.1, which is the lowest ever reported for APDs operating at 1.3 μm.
