Paper Title:
Surface Morphology of GaN Films Grown by RF-Plasma MBE Using Lateral Overgrowth and Low-Temperature Ga-rich Condition
  Abstract

In order to improve the crystal quality of MBE-grown GaN layers we employed a high temperature growth process and enhanced the lateral overgrowth. The grain size of the GaN layer was enlarged up to 2 "m in diameter. Significant improvement in the XRD characteristics was found, and the FWHM value of the asymmetric (10-12) XRD ω-scan peak became less than 400 arcsec when the layer thickness was 3 "m. Further, to planarise the surface, the low temperature gallium-rich growth process was employed and the large grooves between the grains vanished.
