<p>Photoluminescence (PL) has been observed from dilute InN<i><sub>x</i></sub>As<sub>1–<i>x</i></sub> epilayers grown by molecular-beam epitaxy. The PL spectra unambiguously show band gap reduction with increasing N content. The variation of the PL spectra with temperature is indicative of carrier detrapping from localized to extended states as the temperature is increased. The redshift of the free exciton PL peak with increasing N content and temperature is reproduced by the band anticrossing model, implemented via a (5×5) <b>k·p</b> Hamiltonian.</p
