Microstructures of GaN and In{sub x}Ga{sub 1-x}N films grown by MOCVD on free-standing GaN templates

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We summarize structural properties of thick HVPE GaN templates from the point of view of their application as substrates for growth of nitride layers. This is followed by the results of optical and structural studies, mostly transmission electron microscopy, of nitride layers grown by MOCVD on top of the HVPE substrates. The results indicate high structural quality of these layers with a low density of threading dislocations (in the range of 10{sup 6} cm{sup -2}). Convergent beam electron diffraction studies showed that the MOCVD GaN films have Ga-polarity, the same polarity as the HVPE GaN substrates. Structural studies of an ... continued below

Convergent beam electron diffraction studies showed that the MOCVD GaN films have Ga-polarity, the same polarity as the HVPE GaN substrates. Structural studies of an InGaN layer grown on top of the MOCVD GaN film showed the presence of two layers, which differed in lattice parameter and composition. The upper layer, on the top of the structure had a c-lattice parameter about 2% larger than that of GaN and contained 10.3 {+-} 0.8% of In. Values measured for the thinner, intermediate layer adjacent to the GaN layer were about 2 .5 times lower.
