The energy band gap and lattice constant of the quaternary alloy GaxIn1-xAsySb1-y were determined over the entire composition space (x, y) using a correlated function expansion (CFE) technique to interpolate from observed ternary compound data. Considerable anomalous band gap behavior (i.e., deep bowing) was found, which produced band gap minima as a function of composition. This deep bowing effect was experimentally observed in a quasibinary alloy (GaSb)1-z(InAs)z at low values of z. In addition, the CFE lattice matching relations of the alloy grown on GaSb and InAs were obtained as a function of composition, and the corresponding band gaps were estimated. The CFE estimates were in good agreement with existing experimental data.
