Abstract: Hexagonal gallium nitride (h-GaN) films of about 400 nm are grown by using radio frequency (RF) plasma source assisted molecular beam epitaxy on (0 0 1)-oriented GaAs substrate. Before the growth of GaN epilayer an A1As layer of about 10 nm was grown at 700 degrees C and nitridized with the temperature ramping from 540 to 730 degrees C. Then low-temperature GaN or AIN was grown as the buffer layer. The epilayers were characterized by using high-resolution X-ray diffraction (HRXRD), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and Raman scattering. By using AIN instead of GaN as the buffer layer, the GaN epilayer quality and morphology are significantly improved. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
