Structural Units and Energy of Grain Boundaries in GaN

  • Jun Chen (a1), Pierre Ruterana (a1) and Gerard Nouet (a1)

Abstract

The energy of coincidence grain boundaries in wurtzite structure was investigated with the Stillinger-Weber potential after modification for GaN. A boundary can have two interfaces with a different period corresponding to the edge and diagonal of the unit cell of coincidence site lattices for rotations around [0001] in the range 0–60°. Their energy depends mainly on the atomic structure of the dislocation cores used for the boundary plane reconstruction. As a function of the structure units in the period, the energy of the edge and diagonal shows two minima which are observed for the edge boundaries.
