We have studied electronic and structural characterizations of high indium content metamorphic InGaAs/InAlAs modulation-doped heterostructures. An improved low-temperature electron mobility of μe = 5.45 × 105 cm2 V s in [1̄ 1 0] was confirmed for a directed Hall-bar sample when Si-doped InAlAs layer was slightly etched. In addition, in-plane mobility anisotropy of 40% between [1 1 0] and [1̄ 1 0] directions was confirmed. This anisotropy seems to be originated from the different undulation period between [1̄ 1 0] and [1 1 0] directions. We theoretically calculated electron mobility taking both alloy disorder scattering and background impurity scattering into account. It is found that the calculated and experimental values are in good agreement.
