Abstract

The electronic band structure of AlN, AlSb, AlAs and their ternary alloys with In has been investigated by ETB. The ETB method has been formulated for sp(3)d(2) basis and nearest neighbor interactions of the compounds and its energy parameters have been derived from the results of the present first principles calculations carried on AlN, AjSb and AlAs. It has been found that the present ETB energy parameters can produce the band structure of the compounds and their ternary alloys with In successfully.
