GaN epitaxial layers on GaN single crystals were grown using molecular beam epitaxy with an NH3 source. The deposited layers were examined by high resolution x-ray diffraction and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. We observed strong and extremely narrow (half-widths of 0.5 meV) lines related to the bound excitons. In the higher energy range we observed three strong lines. Two of them are commonly attributed to free exciton transitions A (3.4785 eV) and B (3.483 eV). Their energetic positions are characteristic of strain-free GaN material.
