Paper Abstract

We report the growth and characterization of a Si-doped, n-type AlGaN layer with 45% Al composition. For the application of n-type AlGaN layers with high Al composition in ultraviolet emitters, we fabricated an n-Al0.45Ga0.55N layer with high crystalline quality and high electrical conductivity by inserting Al0.85Ga0.15N/AlN superlattices (SLs) to prevent cracks prior to growing the n-type AlGaN layer. The dislocation density in the n-AlGaN layer with 45% Al composition and SLs was less than 2.4 x 1010 cm-2, which was lower than the dislocation density of 5.3 x 1010 cm-2 for the n-AlGaN layer without SLs. The resistivity, mobility, and free electron concentration in the n-type Al0.45Ga0.55N layer with SLs were 2.2 x 10-2 Ω×cm, 55.0 cm2 /V-s, and 5.0 x 1018 cm-3 at room temperature, respectively.
