Direct evidence for N-induced strong coupling of host conduction band (CB) states in GaNxP1-x is provided by photoluminescence excitation. It is manifested as: (1) a drastic change in the ratio of oscillator strengths between the optical transitions involving the CB minimum (CBM) and the high-lying Γ CB state; (2) a strong blueshift of the Γ CB state with increasing x accompanying a redshift of the CBM, (3) pinning of the localized N states and a newly emerging t2 (L or X3) CB state. These findings shed new light on the issue of the dominant mechanism responsible for the giant band-gap bowing of dilute nitrides.
