We report on the crystal morphology and Raman scattering features of high structural quality GaSb1-xBix alloys grown by molecular beam epitaxy with a high Bi content (x up to similar to 0.10). The Raman spectra were measured at room temperature with different laser excitation wavelengths of 532nm, 633nm, and 785nm. We observed well-defined Bi-induced Raman peaks associated with atomic Bi-n clusters and GaBi vibrational modes. Remarkably, some Bi-induced Raman modes were strongly enhanced when the laser energy was selected near an optical transition for the 5.8%Bi sample. This effect was attributed to a Raman resonant effect near an excited optical transition of the GaSbBi layer and has been used to identify the nature of the observed Raman peaks. (AU)
