Paper Abstract

A variety of spectroscopic techniques has been used to study the optical properties of epitaxial GaN based materials grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition and molecular beam epitaxy. The emphasis was on the issues vital to device applications such as stimulated emission and laser action, as well as carrier relaxation dynamics. Sharp exciton structures were observed by optical absorption measurements above 300 K, providing direct evidence of the formation of excitons in GaN at temperatures higher than room temperature. Using a picosecond streak camera, the time decay of free and bound exciton emissions was studied. By optical pumping, stimulated emission and lasing were investigated over a wide temperature range up to 420 K. In addition, the optical nonlinearity of GaN was studied using wave mixing techniques.
