Paper Abstract

GaN epilayers were grown on the AlN buffer layer obtained by pulsed atomic-layer epitaxy (PALE). The influence of PALE-AlN buffer thickness on the quality of GaN epilayers were investigated by atomic force microscopy, high resolution X-Ray diffraction, and photoluminescence (PL) spectrum. The strain states of the GaN epilayers were studied by Raman spectrum. It was found that the thickness of PALE-AlN buffer layer is a key parameter that affects the quality of GaN epilayer, and a proper growth period of PALE-AlN buffer layer leads to excellent surface morphology, crystal quality and optical properties of the GaN epilayer.
