We report on the excitation wavelength and power dependence of LPMOCVD grown GaN photoluminescence (PL). A mode-locked Ti:Sapphire laser that is doubled to provide a tunable wavelength range of 350-500 nm is used to pump the GaN samples. Special attention has been paid to the “yellow” (∼567 nm) luminescence. Different power dependence characteristics of the yellow emission are observed when pumping above and below the bandgap. A measurement of the photoluminescence excitation spectrum of the yellow peak (∼567 nm) is also performed and this spectrum shows a peak at room temperature at 3.36 eV (369 nm), an additional broad peak at 77 K and only the broad peak at 7 K. An excitation model is used to explain the behavior of the yellow emission, suggesting the neutral donor serves as a key species for the yellow emission.
