The Growth of GaN Films on Si Substrates by HVPE


Article Preview

GaN films are grown on Si(111) with low-temperature GaN (LT-GaN) layers as buffer layers by hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE). The LT-GaN layers are deposited at different temperatures ranging from 400 to 900 °C. The surface property, the structure and optical properties of the GaN films with different LT-GaN layers are studied. When deposition temperature of LT-GaN layer is 600 °C, the GaN film shows the best properties.
