A GaPAs waveguide with GaP cladding layers, has been fabricated in only two steps of LPE growth. One-way optical loss of the fabricated GaPAs-GaP waveguide is 12% mm-1 (α = 1.9 cm-1). The free carrier concentration of the GaPAs layer is 1 × 1016 cm -3 (α = 0.05 cm-1). The backward spontaneous Raman spectrum from the GaPAs waveguide shows a GaP-like longitudinal optical (LO) phonon line. The LO band is intensified and shifted to a higher frequency compared to the LO phonon of GaP bulk crystal.
