Temporally resolved selective area growth of InP on patterned substrates with openings off-oriented from  direction was studied by low pressure hydride vapour phase epitaxy system. Lateral overgrowth and vertical growth were analysed. The lateral growth rate was observed to be strongly dependent on the orientation of the openings. The maximum lateral growth rate was achieved when the openings oriented at 30 degrees and 60 degrees off  direction. The vertical growth rate was relatively constant, independent of the opening orientation. The growth behaviour of InP in openings aligned at low index directions was explained by dangling bond theory. A new phenomenon of inhomogeneous and orientation dependent dopant distribution within an overgrown layer was observed in stained cross-sections by SEM.
