Paper Abstract

Nonpolar m-plane GaN layers were grown on patterned Si (112) substrates by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). A two-step growth procedure involving a low-pressure (30 Torr) first step to ensure formation of the m-plane facet and a high-pressure step (200 Torr) for improvement of optical quality was employed. The layers grown in two steps show improvement of the optical quality: the near-bandedge photoluminescence (PL) intensity is about 3 times higher than that for the layers grown at low pressure, and deep emission is considerably weaker. However, emission intensity from m-GaN is still lower than that of polar and semipolar (1 100 ) reference samples grown under the same conditions. To shed light on this problem, spatial distribution of optical emission over the c+ and c wings of the nonpolar GaN/Si was studied by spatially resolved cathodoluminescence and near-field scanning optical microscopy.
