The effect of static uniaxial compression along the cubic direction 〈100〉 is studied. The empirical pseudo‐potential method (EPM) within the so‐called virtual crystal approximation (VCA) is used to compute the electronic charge densities at selected k‐points of the valence and the conduction band edges in Ga1−xAlxP. These charge densities are used to study the modification of the bonding and the electronic properties of the alloy with respect to the composition and the lattice constant variations along the 〈100〉 direction.
