The density of states for a GaAsN sample with a nitrogen concentration of x=1.2% is determined experimentally via scanning tunnelling spectroscopy. These data are modelled using the linear combination of isolated nitrogen states (LCINS) model within a Greens function framework. Extrinsic thermal and modulation broadening effects due to the measurement process are also incorporated. Excellent agreement to the experimental data is obtained without arbitrary fitting parameters, providing confirmation of the influence of isolated N and N-N pair states on the conduction band dispersion of GaAsN.
