Heteroepitaxy of high-quality InSb films was performed directly on GaAs surfaces by using molecular beam epitaxy. Despite the 14.6% lattice mismatch, two-dimensionally grown InSb on GaAs(111)A substrates were obtained from the initial stage, but not on (001) substrates. A conductive layer was formed from the early stage of the growth on the (111)A surface, and the mobilities and carrier concentrations of InSb on (111)A substrates suggested a low defect density due to confinement of the dislocations to the interface.
