We present a growth study and structural characterization of InP-InSb nanowire heterostructures. In contrast to planar epitaxy, this heterostructure can be realized in nanowires without the formation of dislocations, despite an extreme lattice-mismatch (10.4%). We obtain high crystal quality in the InSb nanowires, confirmed by a narrow 111 reflection peak measured by XRD. Additionally, the diameter dependence of the nanowire growth rate was investigated. An original competition between surface growth and nanowire growth is found, which can be controlled by varying the nanowire surface coverage. Finally, HRTEM and X-EDS investigations reveal that the InSb nanowire is always defect-free zinc-blende, and that the InP-InSb heterointerface is free from misfit dislocations, although single twin planes are common.
