We report studies of the temperature dependence of Raman lines in high quality GaN and AlN. The temperature dependence of the phonon energies and linewidths are used to produce consistent phonon decay properties of zone center optic phonons. In GaN we observe the E22 phonon to decay into three phonons, while the A1(LO) phonon is well described according to the so-called Ridley process – one TO and one LA phonon. For AlN the E22 phonon decays by two phonon emission and the A1(LO) line also exhibits a dependence consistent with the Ridley process. Along with the phonon decay processes, it is important in each case to take into account the contribution of the thermal expansion, including the temperature dependence, to describe observed temperature shifts in the phonon properties.
This letter reports on multi-layer submicron epitaxial device structures grown by hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE). This is the first demonstration of both high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) devices and ultraviolet light emitting diodes (LED) emitting in the wavelength range from 305 to 340 nm based on AlGaN/GaN and AlGaN/AlGaN heterostructures grown by HVPE. Two unique aspects of this technological approach are the growth of Al-containing epitaxial material by HVPE and use of HVPE to form submicron multi-layer epitaxial structures. The high performance of HVPE grown devices presented in this report demonstrates the significant potential that exists for HVPE growth technology for mass production of device epitaxial wafers.
High quality undoped AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors(HEMTs) structures have been gorwn by Hydride Vapor Phase Epitaxy (HVPE). The morphology of the films grown on Al2O3 substrates is excellent with root-mean-square roughness of ∼0.2nm over 10×10μm2 measurement area. Capacitance-voltage measurements show formation of dense sheet of charge at the AlGaN/GaN interface. HEMTs with 1μm gate length fabricated on these structures show transconductances in excess of 110 mS/mm and drain-source current above 0.6A/mm. Gate lag measurements show similar current collapse characteristics to HEMTs fabricated in MBE- or MOCVD grown material.
The structural, optical, and electrical properties of HVPE-grown GaN-on-sapphire templates were studied. The c and a lattice constants of the GaN layers were measured by x-ray diffraction. It was observed that the c and a lattice constants vary non-monotonically with Si-doping. The proper selection of Si-doping level and growth conditions resulted in controllable strain relaxation, and thus, influenced defect formation in GaN-on-sapphire templates. It was also observed that HVPE homoepitaxial GaN layers grown on the templates have better crystal quality and surface morphology than the initial templates.
