We describe epitaxial growth of solid solutions of GaAs1-xNx with high nitrogen concentrations. The equilibrium constants of reactions needed for the formation of single phase alloys are calculated and compared with experimental pressure and growth temperature data. We show good agreement between the experiment and the calculated thermodynamic growth conditions. In addition, our calculations indicate that at room temperature the alloys of GaAs1-xNx are either unstable or metastable with respect to decomposition, for the entire range of compositions.
