Abstract

A double pendeo-epitaxy technique for growing uniformly GaN films with low defect density over the entire surface of a substrate has been achieved by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition(MOCVD). The structural properties of the first pendeo-epitaxial layers were optimized with the ratio of the lateral to the vertical growth rate, which is strongly affected by the growth temperature and the TMGa flow rate. The second pendeo-epitaxial growth was performed on the first regrown layers after removing a high defective region originating from underlying GaN seed layer. From the analysis of atomic force microscopy(AFM) images, the termination of surface steps by threading dislocations were not observed at the second regrown GaN layers. This result implies that a very low density of threading dislocation exists on the GaN surface. Cathodoluminescence(CL) results showed a strong band-edge emission from the all regrown regions.
