The misfit dislocation core structures in InAs/GaAs(110) heterostructures were calculated for InAs thicknesses of 2 and 4 ML using first-principles calculations. Dislocation cores with asymmetric five-fold coordinated In atoms were formed at the InAs/GaAs interface. This core structure is maintained even if the thickness of InAs epilayer increases. We also calculated for the GaAs/InAs(110) heterostructure and the core has a different structure at the very initial stage of heteroepitaxy.
