Abstract

Semipolar (11[2 with combining macron]2) GaN templates are improved by interface modification and employed as growth templates for green-amber-emitting high indium content InGaN/GaN quantum wells (QWs). The interface modification is realized by high-temperature annealing of an inserted low-temperature GaN layer, which enhances adatom diffusion and site-selectively blocks defects for interface-modified GaN templates. The luminescence properties of the InGaN/GaN QWs grown on the semipolar GaN templates are significantly enhanced by the interface modification. Green-amber emission with double peaks at 520 and 600 nm is observed for the InGaN/GaN QWs grown on the interface-modified semipolar GaN templates and is attributed to a) improvement in overlapping of the electron and hole wave functions due to weak polarization fields for growth along (11[2 with combining macron]2), b) enhancement in interband transitions involving the excited quantized carrier states, and c) reduction in electron loss at high injection currents due to reduction of threading defect density in the interface-modified semipolar GaN templates.
